Police stopped a motorist for a routine traffic infraction. At the time of the stop the motorist advised the arresting officer that he did not have a valid license. The man was charged and placed under arrest for Operating on a Suspended or Expired License. This was not the motoristӳ first offense. In fact he had a lengthy criminal record or history of being convicted of this same offense on several occasions in the past. Fearful of increased punishment for his subsequent offense the motorist retained Attorney John L. Calcagni III to defend him against the pending charge. Attorney Calcagni successfully negotiated for the dismissal of this charge at the motoristӳ very first court appearance.
