An attorney had her Rhode Island driver's license suspended after a second driving under the influence arrest.
After the license was suspended by a magistrate
Approximately four hours later, the respondent appeared at the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles in Fall River, Massachusetts, and filed an application for a Massachusetts driver’s license, providing as her residential address the property for which she had entered the lease agreement the day before. The application form filled out by the respondent contained the following question: “Is your license or RIGHT to operate suspended, revoked, canceled, withdrawn, or disqualified here, or in another state, country, or jurisdiction?” In response to that question the respondent placed a check mark in the box designated “No."
The Rhode Island Supreme Court ordered a suspension of three months with treatment and AA obligations on reinstatement. (Mike Frisch)
