State v. Ms. K (DMC No. 8437)

DRIVING WHILE LICENSE SUSPENDED for FAILURE to INSTALL INTERLOCK DEVICE REDUCED to SPEEDING TICKET – State v. Ms. M (DMC No. 8437) (Verde Valley Justice Court TR2008-5514): Ms. M was stopped while travelling Westbound on El Rancho Bonito approximately a half mile west of Page Springs, Arizona. She was stopped by the Officer for traveling 35 in a 25mph zone. After the stop, the Officer discovered that she was required to have an Ignition Interlock Device on her vehicle due to a prior DUI conviction. He then arrested her for Driving With a Suspended License. Because Ms. B did not have the Interlock Device, she would have suffered a 1 year license suspension and Jail time if she were to be convicted. We were able to convince the Prosecutor to drop the Driving on a Suspended License charge due to the questionable nature of the stop, and the fact that she installed an Interlock Device immediately after being released from Jail. They then dismissed the Driving on a Suspended License charge and allowed Ms. M to plead to a simple speeding ticket.
