Juvenile Avoids Year-Long License Suspension in Fairfield CountyCategories: Juvenile Offenses, Traffic Offenses
Recently, a juvenile in Fairfield County found himself facing a lengthy driver’s license suspension after receiving his third ticket for speeding. Per the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles, any individual who commits three moving violations before turning 18 must submit to a mandatory one-year driver’s license suspension. Wanting to avoid the suspension, the young man reached out to the Columbus criminal defense lawyers at Luftman, Heck & Associates.
Attorney Joseph Kunkel spoke with the prosecutor and explained the circumstances of his client’s situation. After some negotiation, the charge was amended to a non-moving violation. As a result, the juvenile only had to complete a brief license suspension, while no points were added to his license. This was a good outcome, as the young man’s car insurance did not increase.
