A client, without counsel, plead guilty to a serious motor vehicle offense. Later, the client received notice that he was eligible to be “certified a habitual offender” and lose his driving privileges for 1-4 years. This is a serious issue because if one is caught driving while certified a habitual offender, he could face a 2.5 year prison sentence.
Realizing the seriousness of this issue, the client retained Attorney Garrison of Waystack Frizzell. Attorney Garrison negotiated with the State and obtained court approval to vacate the convictions, thereby avoiding client’s certification as a habitual offender.
