Successful Defense of Speeding 11+ Charge: Ticket Dismissed with No License Suspension at RITT on 11/21/23
CHARGE: SPEEDING 11+
The client, a twenty-year-old residing out of state in Connecticut, was passing through Rhode Island when the incident occurred. While driving within Rhode Island, the client was pulled over by law enforcement for a severe case of speeding. Specifically, the client was charged with traveling at a speed of 100 miles per hour in a zone where the speed limit was set at 55 miles per hour.
Given the gravity of the situation, where speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour often lead to automatic license suspension, the defense counsel, Angelica Bovis, adopted a multifaceted approach to address the client's predicament.
Gathering Mitigation Information: Attorney Bovis immediately commenced the process by collecting comprehensive mitigation information. This included a thorough examination of the client's personal background, which encompassed factors such as the client's age, residency in Connecticut, and any pertinent aspects of their life.
Review of Driving History: In addition to the client's personal information, the defense team meticulously reviewed the client's driving history. This was done to ascertain whether the client had a pattern of traffic violations or if this incident was an isolated occurrence.
Advocating for No License Suspension: Armed with this collected information, Attorney Bovis constructed a compelling case to present before the judge. The primary objective was to advocate for no license suspension, a critical concern, especially for young drivers.
Negotiating a Favorable Resolution: Attorney Bovis engaged in negotiations with the relevant authorities to secure the best possible outcome for the client. This involved advocating for a resolution that would not result in the suspension of the client's driver's license.
Through skilled negotiations and a compelling presentation of mitigation evidence, Attorney Angelica Bovis successfully negotiated a favorable resolution for the client. This resolution included a unique stipulation: a six-month review period during which the client needed to avoid incurring any new traffic violations. Meeting this requirement would result in the dismissal of the case without a license suspension.
