Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.

Good afternoon. What was the basis of the suspension and what was falsified? Are you a first time offender? What State was this in?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

1) under suspension until 12/2014

2) Ohio

3) Not a first time offender - first offense though in 5+ years

4) Falsified using my brothers information

5) All of this for running a stop sign I didn't see


Expert:  CriminalDefense replied 3 years ago.
Thank you for the additional information. If the officer had a legal basis to stop you ( i.e. running a stop sign), then there would be no basis to support a motion to suppress the stop. Moreover, if you knew your license was suspended and intentionally provided the officer with your brother information, knowing it was not true, this is not likely a case that would proceed to trial either. As such, it may be in your best interest to speak with the State about a plea deal. These are all nonviolent crimes and if you have stayed out of trouble for 5+ plus years, the State may not be looking to incarcerate. If anything, you would be facing a fine, court costs, probation and possible community service. When you appear in court, you can ask the prosecutor handling the case for an offer to resolve this. Of course, this could also extend the time of suspension as well.
