Man Facing the Loss of His CDL Gets Charges Dropped

Feb 09 2018, by Jessica McElfresh in Case Results, Traffic Violations

Recently in California, a man was speeding on his motorcycle, but when the police attempted to pull him over, he continued at a high-rate of speed for a few more blocks. Although he did eventually stop and comply with the officers, he was charged with evasion of a police officer.

This created a serious problem for the man. As a commercial driver’s license holder, a misdemeanor conviction could result in up to six months in jail and the loss of his CDL and ultimately, his job. With the help of attorney Jessica McElfresh, the misdemeanor was dropped, and he was only required to do a diversion program, involving some volunteer work. Afterwards, the case will be entirely dismissed with his CDL preserved.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
