Remember it like it was yesterday. Judges we have another matter that is 17 years old charges mr Turner again with feeling to execute his turn signal and overtaking on the left and significantly it was not an accident involved in that incident additionally we have a similar charge overtaking on the. West and no turn signal he specializes in spectacle in in turn signals and overtaking on. The left console at the edge of my seat waiting for your explanation what. Do you want to tell. Me both thank you your honor this case was referred to me as. Part of the Roger Williams Law School pro bono collaborative so. I'm up here in here pro bono this morning mr Turner has been in was at starting at the age of 18 until recently has been in and out of the state prison system. He most recently was. Released in May of last year he completed a treatment program at the ammos house for 90 days and since then he's been working very hard at a company called Rhode Island metals full-time. And what we're looking to do here your honors she has tickets here he has. Tickets in Pawtucket one other community and also at the rail and traffic tribunal and were visiting all of the places where he has all tickets and in attempt to resolve them so that we can then move forward so that. He can get. His license you want to get him back in the mainstream of society feeling that he's paid his debt to society by the years that he spent incarcerated yes your honor before I worked where I currently am at worked for the federal court system and as part of that I worked. Pretty closely with what's called the HOPE Court which is a federal reentry Court here in Rhode Island so as part of that observe quite a few defendants who were very interested in changing their lives after being released from prison and what I've observed is that the people who really do want to change who really do want to make an. Effort often are successful at that so I've been working with mr.. Turner now for a few months and I found to be very punctual and very responsive to all my requests and he looked he seems to me to be the type of person I think really does want to change his life. I think a. License will help that would you allow your client to speak yes okay good morning sir good morning yeah I've had a chance to look at your record you have you have about 15 violations here tell me ands I mentioned earlier I think you specialized and not. Putting in turn signal on and overtaking on the left and other violations before I know how to drive like I got anything tell me about what you want to do and what um right now I'm you don't have to answer this. But you spent some time in prison yes Sarah no how many is I got a lease since I was 18 and 36 now that's like 18. Years so you spent most of your life in prison grew up in that since you've been out have you had any problems no no no problem where are you living I. Live in Cranston are you living in a house or a halfway house we know I'm living in an apartment and the apartment I just got apartment who do you live with I live with a girlfriend you know it sounds to me like you're getting. The breaks the mainstream of voice mm-hmm I have subscribed to the theory that someone has spent an awful lot of time incarcerated that I want to give them a new and a chance in life yes I mean these are all traffic cases so my choices that I say no I'm going to find you when all of these your. License will be suspended forever until you pay all of these it serves no useful purpose for me to do that that's wrong and so based on the representations of your counsel who did a great job today thank you the sincerity that you are exhuming to me anyway yes I think you're worthy. For having all of these dismissed I'm gonna dismissed all of them thank you your honor I'm gonna just. Ask you this okay I'm betting on you. I'm betting that you're gonna do good oh yes okay and I'm rooting for you okay don't disappoint me yes sir yes I'm not gonna come back at you and do anything terrible right but I just I want to place my faith that you will stand the straight and narrow path. Yes your honor you know what you know what it's like in there right so you got a choice back to where you were in prison or living with your girlfriend inspector Quin what do you choose I haven't seen his girlfriend but the city agrees with with your explanation and I do believe that mr Turner is on. The right path right now and we also the city we do we should have asked them thank you I want to congratulate Council for an excellent presentation mr Turner our best wishes for you good luck to you these matters are dismissed as far as the registry is concerned you will be quit through this court okay thank you your. Mom okay good walk first of all I would like to congratulate mr. Williams for taking the positive steps necessary to get his life back on track. I would also like to thank his attorney. Mr. Baldwin for. Having the decency and compassion to take on mr. Taylor's case for free the phrase with liberty. And justice for all represents the. Idea that justice should be accessible to everyone however it is not almost 90 percent of all income Americans are forced to battle civil issues like health care unjust evictions veterans benefits and yes even traffic violations alone access to justice is. More critical now than ever that's why lawyers like mr. Baldwin will volunteer their time and expertise to help low income Americans I hear to me thank you again counselor your efforts are appreciated and also very much needed yes Ben. Vasquez yes man oh my goodness what'd you do yes ma'am one two three got four red white violations three of them and Roger Williams and Elmwood you'll make a right-hand turn on right yeah I usually stop me and my boyfriend have shared the same car so I mean I.
