SPEEDING TICKET BEATEN-LICENSE SAVED

RJ, a 54 year old man who drives for a living, was at risk of losing his license for three speeding tickets. He had gone to Haverhill (MA) District Court on his own and lost his appeal of a speeding ticket and he had paid a speeding ticket in California which was then reported to Massachusetts. He then got stopped on the Lowell Connector and was charged with going 71 mph in a 55 mph zone. The police were using a Lidar Device. If found responsible he would have lost his license. On October 5, 2011 RJ and Attorney Robert Lewin appeared in Lowell District Court for the hearing in front of the Clerk-Magistrate. RJ thought his case was hopeless. After a full hearing before the Clerk-Magistrate RJ was found NOT responsible. RJ and Attorney Lewin focused on RJ’s version of what had occurred and his testimony that he was going 53 mph. The Clerk-Magistrate found RJ’s version credible, the Lidar reading notwithstanding.
