Vehicle Code section 12500, “Driving Without a License” Case Completely Dismissed Per Penal Code section 1385

Recently, attorney Alexandra Mateus, was able to negotiate for the complete dismissal of the misdemeanor Vehicle Code section 12500, “Driving Without a License,” offense charged against our client.

At the arraignment, the prosecution was willing to reduce the misdemeanor offense to an infraction if our client obtained his valid California Driver’s License and paid a fine. However, Attorney Mateus was able to further negotiate with the prosecution for a complete dismissal of the charges if our client obtained his California Driver’s License by the next court date.

At the next court date, we presented the prosecution with our client’s Driver’s License and the case was completely dismissed in the interests of justice pursuant to Penal Code section 1385!

This is a great result for our client that results in a dismissal of the charge!
