Speeding Charges Mitigated for Teen Driver After Aggressive Advocacy at the Rhode Island Traffic Tribunal on 1/15/2024
CHARGES: Multiple Speeding Violations, Including a Speeding Charge Alleging 120 mph in a 55 mph Zone
CASE: The Marin, Barrett, and Murphy Law Firm was contacted by the concerned parents of a 17-year-old client who had accumulated several speeding tickets within a short period, culminating in a particularly egregious violation of 120 mph in a 55 mph zone.
Attorney Jason Ollman engaged in a detailed consultation with the client's family to comprehensively understand the situation. Armed with a strategic plan, Attorney Ollman diligently prepared for the initial court appearance. On the day of the hearing, Attorney Ollman presented the case skillfully, taking into account the client's age, driving history, and the parental concerns. After careful deliberation and consideration of these factors, the presiding Judge demonstrated empathy and agreed to a resolution that balanced the need for consequences and education.
The outcome entailed a minimal 30-day license suspension for the young driver and enrollment in the Alive at 25 program, a defensive driving course aimed at educating young drivers about the risks and responsibilities associated with driving.
