Driving while suspended or revoked, 3rd offense (46.2-301) amended to Driving without a license in possession (46.2-104).
This week I successfully defended against a 3rd offense suspended license charge by showing that my client did not have notice that his license was suspended on the specific day that he was stopped. I accomplished this by preparing a spreadsheet that listed my client’s suspensions and explained which suspensions occurred after the traffic stop and which suspensions had been resolved prior to the traffic stop. The amendment from 3rd offense driving while suspended (46.2-301) to Driving without a license in possession (46.2-104) resulted in avoiding a class 1 misdemeanor and the 10 days mandatory jail, 90 days license suspension, and 6 demerit points associated with that charge. Instead, my client received a traffic infraction, a $10 fine, and zero demerit points.
