Driving without a license – case dismissed and no deportation proceedings

Client is from the Dominican Republic and has lived in the U.S. since 2002. In 2012, she was stopped by a police officer and ticketed for driving without a license and failing to yield. After negotiating with the prosecutor, we resolved the case by dismissing the driving without a license charge in exchange for a plea to failing to yield, a minor misdemeanor, carrying a fine of only $200.
