What's the odds of winning this case
So I was pulled over for driving with no non criminal suspended license "due to unpaid fines" I don't have none and was confirmed by DMV but I did find out my license was suspended when pulled over due to insurance not sending documents to DMV of sr22 being valid but officer never asked for anything but ID and most questions where regarding the "what he asked if it was a roch " no!
