Clerk Magistrate Hearing
Possession of/Forging of a False Identification or License
Client was a young, conscientious public safety official who simply made a mistake. He illegally attached a license plate to his car. At the time, he was down on his luck and did not have any money. Attorney Barabino prepared vigorously with client, presenting evidence to the clerk that he had a valid license and did not know he did anything wrong. Attorney Barabino also presented a supplementary background memorandum on client’s hardworking, exemplary life. In the end, the clerk magistrate denied the application for a criminal complaint. Client has no record of incident on him.
RESULT: Application for Criminal Complaint Does Not Issue, No Criminal Record
