Traffic Violations Case Results

To see just how successful our approach is, here are some representative results:

State v. J.B.

October, 2018
Charges: Driving After Revocation - Misdemeanor

Stay of Adjudication. The client had 8 prior convictions of similar charges - a huge amount that makes successful plea bargaining damn near impossible. But, this client was also different. He had all but completed the driver diversion program prior to this incident. Utilizing this and working with a prosecutor that understood the need to get individuals back and valid, an plea bargain was reached whereby the client can immediately seek reinstatement of his driving privileges, thereby ending the vicious cycle he had been on. An absolute must of a result that we achieved.

State v. B.S.

February, 2018
Charges: School Bus Arm Violation - Misdemeanor

Stay of Adjudication. Minimal fine and terms of one-year probation are essentially non-existent. After the year probation, this matter will be dismissed without a conviction on the client's clean record - a critical outcome for her and her future.

State v. K.L.

February, 2018
Charges: Driving After Suspension - Misdemeanor

Client pled guilty to an amended count of public nuisance. The reason for the curious outcome is that this plea - and the client had no viable option but to enter a plea - will not lead to another traffic violation ending up on his driving record. For a client with a bad driving record, this outcome does not result in further suspension of his driving privileges and does not add another violation that could have gotten him further suspended because of the sheer number of violations over a short time period. This kind of attention to detail allows for creative outcomes to put the client in the best position possible after the case is done.

State v. B.S.

January, 2018
Charges: Misdemeanor School Bus Stop Violation

Stay of adjudication for only $200 and no same violations over the next year. The State initially wanted a straight plea and conviction. But, after thoughtful negotiations from the team at North Star, we were able to preserve the client's clean criminal record with this outcome.

State v. R.G.

January, 2018
Charges: Traffic matters, including driving after suspension and no proof of insurance, out of two different counties.

One of the traffic cases was dismissed in its entirety, while the other was resolved for a continuance for a dismissal, meaning the client did not offer a plea and will never be convicted of anything. Her record will remain clean, which was critical for a commercial driver.

State v. Confidential

December, 2016
Charges: Hit and Run, Failure to Report Property Damage Accident

Dismissal. In this matter, wherein a person of significant local fame faced a matter that would have proven quite embarrassing had it reached the papers or the local news, Mr. Adkins secured a dismissal before the first court date. Outright dismissal, no fees, no term of conditions.

State v. T.L.

April, 2016
Charges: Driving After Suspension - Misdemeanor

Continuance for dismissal. Due to a proactive approach by the client and the hard negotiations by North Star, this client achieved the best possible outcome. The end result is no conviction, no hit in his driving record, and the ability for a young adult to move forward without a criminal record.

State v. K.K.

February, 2016
Charges: Juvenile Traffic - School Bus Violation

Continuance for Dismissal. Client is a honors student with aspirations to attend a well-respected college. Obtaining a dismissal was critical to avoid creating a red flag in college applications. What was once feared to be a gross misdemeanor charge is now resolved as a traffic ticket with a 6-month probationary period and no fee or fine. The client is ecstatic with this outcome and knowing that she can keep her record clean.

State v. J.F.

November, 2015
Charges: Driving after Cancellation, Inimical to Public Safety (DAC-IPS), and B-Card Violation

Dakota County. Case dismissed. Here, the issue of a lack of actual, verifiable notice to the client that his driving privileges were cancelled, was argued forcefully by Mr. Adkins, to a fantastic end. Be sure to hire lawyers who will go beyond simply accepting the State's assertions. Diligent discovery and investigation led to this outright dismissal. This is what distinguishes North Star Criminal Defense from the pack. This client gets to return to the roadway without fear, and without further needless blemishes on his record.
