“I tell you what, if he comes back with a valid license on the next court date, I’ll buy you a nice vegetarian dinner”. Wow! I thought to myself. It’s not every day that even the government is jaded by the ability of the accused to right the ship. Change Course. Plot a new path. Ask for the Mulligan, in other words begin again.
The accused has numerous charges for driving without a valid driver’s license simply because he never bothered to pay a reinstatement fee to the Secretary of State. That’s right, failure to pay a reinstatement fee (that’s the only reason for the suspension) is enough to land you in the county jail for almost a year and or court fees of up to $2500.
Does that make any sense to you?
Dear Government Prosecutor,
Here’s a list of some of my favorite vegetarian friendly places for that dinner.
Old Town Social
My client has assured me that your offer of dinner for me is worth it to him. He will comply. He will start again with a valid driver's license.
