Dani Peden Negotiates a Stay of Adjudication for a Gross Misdemeanor Driving Offense
Date: February 2020
Case: Driving After Cancellation – Inimical to Public Safety
Attorney: Danielle C. Peden
Result: Dani’s client was charged with Gross Misdemeanor Driving After Cancellation – Inimical to Public Safety in Sherburne County. Although the State initially wanted jail time and a Gross Misdemeanor conviction, Dani was able to secure a stay of adjudication for her client with no executed jail. This means her client plead to the offense, but the judge set the plea aside and in two years the case will be dismissed assuming there are no violations. This resolution allowed Dani’s client to avoid a conviction which would have suspended his driver’s license again.
