Can you be pulled over for driving without a license after giving your name to police in an unrelated matter?
The police were called for a civil matter and I gave my name and address when asked. Later, the same officer pulled me over and charged me with 2ND degree aggravated unlicensed operation and claimed that my suspension came up on his plate reader. The vehicle isn't registered to me, and the registrant has a valid license so his statement about the plate reader is false. While he could have come up with any reason for the stop, he claimed it was the suspension. Is this acceptable? Thank you.

After winning a refusal hearing, is it possible to get a DUI charge dropped against you?
Today I had my second DMV refusal hearing after a 6 month wait because the officer didn't appear the first time. We were successful in arguing the shotty paperwork. Today was a huge relief. We no longer need a DUI to be eligible for a conditional license since we won the refusal and I am wondering based on past experiences what a court is likely to do. They have no BAC and a defendant that won his refusal case. Is it possible to only receive the initial speeding ticket? or maybe plead guilty to a more serious traffic infraction?
Congratulations but the fact that you won your refusal hearing has no bearing on the outcome of the DWI case.
What paperwork must a cop submit to a refusal hearing if they fail to show up?
I have my second refusal hearing coming up in a few days. My first one was adjourned because the cop didn't show. No paperwork was submitted the first time. I'm trying to find out what needs to happen to have a decent chance at winning this hearing. If the officer doesn't show up again, is a police report enough information?
There needs to be a "report of refusal" submitted to the hearing judge. Depending on the location, if the officer does...
Is it possible to adjourn court till after the DMV hearing? Im pretty sure this hearing result is crucial to the criminal case.
I was arrested for a DWI. However I refused to submit to a breathalyzer. I drive for a living and was never told I would automatically lose my license for a year. I wouldn't of voluntarily forfeited my career. At my first DMV hearing the officer didn't show up nor submit paperwork meaning it will have to be rescheduled for months down the road.
