In this particular case he was driving his brothers car.
Unfortunately for my client, it is the driver's responsibility to make sure that the vehicle is covered by current liability insurance, even though the driver is not the owner of the vehicle.
Driving without current liability insurance is charged in Georgia as a criminal misdemeanor, and it can be punishable by time in jail.
Fortunately for client though, after negotiations with the prosecutor, I was able to get his charge reduced to a minor traffic violation.
This is a big win for my client because he will not have a criminal misdemeanor on his record.
