Challenging Charges of Driving with a Suspended License in Florida
If you are arrested for allegedly driving with a suspended license, it may seem like a fairly open and shut case. Even if law enforcement and the prosecuting attorney seem confident that they can prove your guilt, this is not necessarily the end of our journey. As a Hendry County criminal defense lawyer with experience in suspended license cases, Fred R. Kahle will consider every possible angle and strategy to build the best defense possible.
The following are important questions to ask, which could weaken or annihilate the prosecuting attorney’s case:
- Did the driver actually know that his or her license was suspended?
- Did the law enforcement officer have probable cause to pull the driver over in the first place?
- Did the arresting officer follow all procedure regarding the arrest?
- Was the driver read his or her Miranda rights?
- Was there any constitutional rights violation?
- Was any evidence mishandled?
- Is any witness for the prosecution, including the arresting officer, compromised in any way?
