Cop a Cop Stop me for Driving with a Suspended License even if I did not commit any Traffic Violation? ~ "Best Answer" by Asker on AVVO ~ Call Michael A. Haber, Esq. @ 1-888-SHARK-8-1

Q:  Pulled over for no reason at all!  Today I was driving down a state road in city limits. I was not speeding, was seat belted and committing no infractions at all. As I drove thru an intersection a marked cruiser pulled into traffic behind me. Within 90 seconds of doing so I was pulled over. When he approached the car, I asked what I had done. He asked me my name and when I gave it to him he replied I had a suspended license for an unpaid ticket. I have no interaction with police so I am not known out and about, I have not received a citation locally in at least 20 years so there is no reason for this. I believe he didn't even have time at the time of the stop to run my tag based on his distance from me.

Answered Look, I'm not going to type the many - the plethora - of viable explanations that I 100% guarantee to you that the cop in question will swear to under oath and on a busload of Bishops and a Cardinal too boot...  but I will bet my mortgage payment that the officer either had an actual reason to stop you (whether you agree with it or not) or that s/he will fabricate one (but, I will add that in this case it's all but guaranteed that the cop ran your plate - which can automatically be done by camera and computer in nano-seconds as the police car drives along the roadway scanning ever car in sight, your car's tag and vehicle registration matched-up with your driver license photo, your suspension flashed in red on the police computer screen and then the cop made what's called a "probable cause" stop - the PC being for DWLS, which is a crime).

So you got a ticket(s) and now it is time to fight it. If the end game was receipt of an infraction(s) then any of the many local Z-hills area traffic lawyers can competently handle your case and if it turned into more, a criminal traffic or other criminal matter, then you might seek more experienced criminal defense counsel. Either way, you can do this alone (foolishly I might add) or you can hire a lawyer to assist you.

You may or may not enjoy viable defenses to the charges, affirmative or otherwise, or there may be factual, legal, procedural or substantive mechanisms by which to attack and beat the charges in your unique case, but the best way for you to get competent advise is going to be to consult with an experienced and local traffic / criminal defense lawyer who can follow-up on your information with questions of her/his own, as well as review the citation(s) / police report(s) and whatever evidence that you may provide and then offer an informed opinion.

What you think or believe may or may not be relevant to what will happen in Court. Please do yourself a favor and let someone with adequate training and knowledge help you to make that call.

Btw, if we are talking about infraction / non-criminal matters only then, in my opinion, the best defense for any traffic citation anywhere is to hire a local traffic ticket lawyer. I can't speak to the Z-hills area per se but in Miami, Fl, where I have been a practicing criminal defense lawyer for 22+ years, for $49-$99 you will get a lawyer who knows the law, the procedure, the Judge and probably the cop. In short you will almost certainly get both competent representation and a better result for a relatively small fee / investment.

I hope that I have been helpful in answering your question.
