St. Lucie, 2021 VOP (DUI)
Facts: Client was placed on probation for a period of 6 months for a DUI in 2005. Unbeknownst to our client, she was violated in 2006, the allegations being a failure to report, a failure to complete community service hours, and a failure to pay all costs. In 2021, our client, who thought the case had been dealt with, was having issues obtaining a professional license due to this open violation of probation.
Result: We got to work right away researching the case law and statutes as it related to a violation of that age. We are able to get the prosecutor to agree that the case should be dismissed. An agreed upon motion and order was submitted by us that very same day. In just 2 days’ time the judge had signed the order and our client’s violation was dismissed allowing her to move forward with her professional license.
