My question involves a driver's license issued by the State of: Virginia
My husbands licence has been suspended for about 8 years. This was due to an laps in insurance on our cars, one of which did not work so the DMV fined 1500.00. I had our third baby when he was stopped the first time and since he had been laid off from his long term job, we had no money. So, he been stopped for a dead inspection sticker and things like that, no moving violations at all. So, he was stopped in December for the inspection, he got his drive on suspended and when he went to court they told him he had another but had not been pulled over. The officer states that he "saw" him get into the car and drive. He had to pick our sick daughter up at school and he was the schools officer, there was noone else to do it. So how can they do this? there was no way for that officer to know if he got into the front seat or back from where he was sitting and I am still amazed that they can just see you. Could they not lie and make up all kinds of stuff? What if they do this all the time and say they saw him? He is already doing weekends for 5 weeks and I am so afraid, he can't loose his job because of this, I just want to be left alone. Also, he has not criminal record, the only thing on his record or traffic violations and a check he wrote years and years ago that has been paid. So what do you all think? Does he have a defense? It is frighting to know that a cop can just claim they "saw" someone do something and thats it. ...
