Marijuana Possession Charge amended to Jay Walking


Multiple Driving While Suspended convictions removed from Missouri driving record

November 2017

Client had eight (8) Driving While Suspended convictions from several municipal courts in Kansas City, Mo.  His driving record was three pages long.  I began a process to remove each conviction one by one until we had 3 remaining convictions from state court.  Removing the first five also removed various "point suspensions" from his record and made him eligible for a license in December 2017.   Generally, courts will not set aside or remove a conviction that is more than one year old, but I was able to convince the Judges in four courts to do just that: remove convictions that were several years old.  Since my client did not have a lawyer on some of the cases, the Judge's were easy to persuade.  The three cases that involved a lawyer who (for reasons unknown) was not able at the time to get an amendment were more difficult to get removed.  However, when you allege "manifest injustice" and list factors that support the claim of "manifest injustice," then a Judge may listen to the argument and grant your Motion to Set Aside a conviction.  In sum, our efforts to remove multiple driving while suspended convictions from my client's record has given him new hope for a better job and secured much better auto insurance rates.  He can now drive legally and can finally afford insurance that was not available due to his very poor driving record.
