Misdemeanor Traffic Offense Dismissed

Traveling down Cleveland Avenue our client came upon a string of drivers slamming on their brakes due to an accident ahead.  Making a split second decision, our client swerved into the left lane of travel to avoid causing an accident.  In doing so, she cut off a police officer who was responding to the accident ahead. Annoyed, the officer pulled our client over and issued her a ticket for failing to yield to a public safety vehicle – a fourth-degree misdemeanor traffic offense punishable by up to 30 days in jail, $250 fine, and two BMV points.

This was our client’s first ever traffic ticket.  Concerned about keeping her record clean, she contacted us for help.  Chase Mallory entered a not guilty plea and demanded a trial by jury for her misdemeanor traffic offense.  After reviewing police reports, it was evident that the officer felt that our client should have simply hit the car in front of her rather than cut the officer off in effort to avoid the collision.  The offer by the prosecutor was not favorable.  Chase Mallory asked the judge to get a jury ready so he could present his client’s story to a jury.  After this, the officer and prosecutor finally agreed to dismiss the case in exchange for the payment of court costs.
