Charges: Driver License Suspension


Court: Leon County / DHSMV

Facts

At an administrative review hearing, the defendant had four DUI convictions considered on his driving record. 

 

Arguments

 

The defendant argued that two of the DUI convictions in the years 1974, and 1975 were invalid because the former DUI was in a county the defendant had never been to, and, the other was unreadable. The hearing officer granted the challenge, but then rescinded the order, ultimately denying the challenge, the defendant appealed with a writ of certiorari. On remand, the hearing officer affirmed defendant’s revocation of his license, after stating that his initial granting was the result of a clerical order. The defense then issued another writ of certiorari directing the department to produce the record from the other case that was

erroneously duplicated by the hearing officer to provide an evidentiary basis for the determination that a clerical error had occurred, as well as appealing the orders.

Outcome

The court granted the writ of certiorari, removed two of the DUIs on the record, and quashed an administrative review by the Department of Motor Vehicles.”

Note: This same argument was made in another case and was successful as well
