Free Lawyer Advice Anyone?

Postby BigbadB » Tue Apr 17, 2018 4:31 pm

So my stepson gets a letter informing him his license is being suspended for a DUI he supposedly received on March 11. It's quite a shocker to him, since he wasn't arrested for DUI. The letter has his name, his DL number and his address. He not only did NOT get a DUI, but he never got pulled over, never got his car impounded, never went to jail, never got fingerprinted, never got a blood alcohol test, shows phone calls, texts and data use on his phone during the time he supposedly would have been arrested for DUI, along with texts to his co-worker on March 12 morning (6:15 am) informing him he was out front of his house to pick him up for work.

The only thing I can even imagine might have happened where he would get this letter is if someone with no ID at all got pulled over and gave the police my stepson's name as their name and the police didn't have any other means to determine the person was lying about who they were. Is there something else that could have happened that I'm not thinking of?

Maybe call the DMV? Maybe they can give you some direction?

Yeah, we don't even know which police agency to contact. State, County, Local.

My guess is that when the police sent the DL# to the DMV to suspend, a number got mistyped somewhere...either on the police end, or the DMV end. Probably a clerical error somewhere along the way.

Sounds like an open and shut lawsuit, boys. Emotional stress, suffering, etc.

this would seem pretty easy to resolve, given that they would've taken mugshots and fingerprints and whatnot of your stepson the guy they arrested

Who is the letter from? It would be the State that would suspend his driving privileges. You could also walk into a local PD and ask them to run the DL. They’ll b able to see if there’s a suspension pending or so f there’s been a mistake.

A simple google search of "Lou Neg esq." and "Lou Neg attorney" results in zero matches.

Nope, I think a single Google search is sufficient to solve this

Reminds me of an expungement I did a few years ago. Guy was applying for a job and was denied because the employers showed him where he had an arrest on his record for armed robbery. This guy had never been arrested in his life.

Turns out that his wallet was stolen 7 years before and later that night the perp mugged another guy and was caught in the act. The cops booked and fingerprinted him using the name that was on the DL in the wallet he had stolen from my guy. The cops figured it out rather quickly and returned the stolen wallet to my guy, but failed to mention that they had originally booked the thief using his ID.

So here he was going around for 7 years and unbeknownst to him he had an armed robbery arrest on his record!

And then make sure you withhold the gas money it took you to get down there from the cost of renewing his drivers license next time

I'm starting to think that maybe this was just some administrative mistype on the letter sent to the DMV with his DL number . If someone gave the police a bogus name, I'm sure he would have started receiving stuff in the mail from the courts regarding his DUI. He hasn't received anything. Actually, when he got the letter from the DMV, he just thought it was his tag renewal form.
