My question involves traffic court in the State of: Illinois
On or about June 26, 2011 at 6:00pm. I was driving the speed limit and obeying all traffic regulations, but the officer conducted a traffic stop. I then asked the officer why I was pulled over; the officer then stated he ran the vehicle's plates and seen that my driving privileges were suspended.
Did the officer have probable cause to pull me over, can this possibly be thrown out? Who is to say I was the one driving the vehicle though, it could have been anybody? I have heard people talk about beating driving on suspended for this reason. Is this just a myth?
I asked the officer repeatedly why I was pulled over he said only because my license status was suspended. Nothing else.
