‘Misstatement of Fact’ Suspension Reduced by 75%

Yesterday, we appeared on a ‘Misstatement of Fact on an Application‘ license suspension at the NJ Motor Vehicle Commission and were successful in negotiating down the proposed suspension term by 75%.

The case arose out of criminal charges for Tampering with Public Records under N.J.S.A. 2C:28-7, which our office also represented the client on in Superior Court. Despite the fact that the court imposed certain penalties for this offense (although much less serious than the maximums allowed by the statute) and did not include a suspension of the client’s license, the client’s license was administratively suspended by the NJ MVC.

The Hearing Process for ‘Misstatement of Fact on an Application’ Suspensions

The client received a Scheduled Suspension Notice a few months ago, and we requested a hearing to challenge the proposed term of suspension. This particular client had a variety of arguments to be made due to the circumstances of his criminal case, as well as the hardships that would befall him if losing his license for the term proposed.

In the end, we were able to convince the Motor Vehicle representative to drop the Misstatement of Fact suspension term by 75%, so that the client would only need to serve 1/4 of the suspension that he would otherwise be obligated to serve based on the original proposed suspension.

Although any license suspension is difficult to handle when the ability to drive is essential to a person’s livelihood, having a suspension period reduced by a year and a half or more can make the situation significantly more manageable.
