Tim’s driver’s license had been revoked due to 2 drunk driving convictions. Also, Tim had a drug conviction. The challenge with Tim’s case was minimal Alcoholics Anonymous attendance. Tim had only attended AA a dozen times. AA can be an important element in proving that your alcohol problem is under control because it provides a support group.
Despite minimal AA attendance, I was able to win Tim driving privileges.
At the hearing, I presented the following favorable evidence:
- Substance abuse evaluation
- Negative drug screen
- Letters from 4 individuals all stating that Tim had abstained from the use of alcohol and drugs and had changed as a person
- Substance abuse counseling records showing completion of the program
At the hearing, Tim testified to his sobriety and how he had maintained his sobriety. Further, Tim testified about how he had changed since he stopped drinking and his goals in the future.
The hearing officer was persuaded to restore driving privileges even though Tim had only attended Alcoholics Anonymous about a dozen times.
