OPERATING AFTER SUSPENSION (9TH OFFENSE) - DISMISSED OPERATING WITHOUT AN IGNITION INTERLOCK - DISMISSED
Ayer District Court - Dismissed in 30 minutes! A repeat, habitual traffic offender was accused of operating a motor vehicle registered to another person that did not even have a license. Because the man did not have a license to operate with an interlock, the case was dismissed under Commonwealth v. Petit, 83 Mass. App. Ct. 401 (2013). The Petit case held that a person whom does not have a hardship license cannot be convicted of operating without an ignition interlock. The man was facing 180 days mandatory minimum. No jail!
