Good morning. Is that what you would like to see happen with the case?
Thank you for the additional information. For the vehicle to be released, a court order would need to be obtained, or else they are going to demand payment for the vehicle. For that to happen, you are going to likely have to prevail. It is more then just a demand and based upon what you shared above, a motion to suppress the stop would need to be filed. It would need to be shown that there was no legal basis to stop the vehicle, which resulted in the discovery of the suspended license and impounding of the car. As such, if the suppress is granted, then the State will not be able to proceed and likely need to dismiss the case. At that time, you could ask for a court order signed by the Judge. Of course, the other route, if your rights were violated, is a civil lawsuit but that will take time, effort and money.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
