It is my understanding that to be guilty of a driving with a suspended license in California (Los Angeles County) you need to be aware your license was suspended. I had a ticket that became a Failure to Appear warrant in February. Than in April, I was stopped and ticketed for running a red light and not warned or cited that my license was suspended. On May 10 in Downtown LA, a LAPD officer stopped me for a malfunctioning brake light, in the investigation he found my license was suspended - and it had only been suspended on May 5, five days prior. Sense I was ticketed in April after my February warrant and that my license was only suspended 5 days prior to the brake light - is this an appropriate and likely defense to fight the suspended license ticket?
