Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If the state fails to produce a complaining witness in court to the violations leading to the suspension, then the court has two options. First, the court may continue it and give the state one more chance to have the witness appear. Second, the defendant would object to the continuance and the court can decide to dismiss the case. The state needs a complaining witness to appear and testify in order to deny the petition to rescind.
