Lonnie had a total of 5 alcohol related convictions. He had attended Alcoholics Anonymous 12 times. He never had any outpatient treatment. Further complicating matters, he continued to drink after his last conviction.
At the hearing, I provided the hearing officer with a favorable substance abuse evaluation, negative drug screen, and 5 letters of support. Lonnie testified to his sobriety and life changes which were consistent with his continued sobriety. I argued that he was entitled to a driver’s license.
The hearing officer agreed with my arguments and granted Lonnie a driver’s license.
