Cell Phone Handheld Device Charge Dismissed for CDL Driver

Our Jackson-based law firm represents countless commercial truck drivers charged with various traffic violations and misdemeanors, many written at the Grass Lake scales. Our client was charged with use of a handheld device (sometimes referred to as cell phone texting), which is a moving violation and significantly impacts both the driver and company. Through investigation, including review of video of the trooper's body camera, we convinced the prosecutor's office to outright dismiss the charge, saving the driver points on his license and the company on its CSA score.
