Issue:
  • Whether the evidence was sufficient to establish that Defendant had notice that his driver’s license was suspended?
Discussion:

Defendant was convicted of driving on a suspended license. Defendant appealed and argued that he had not received adequate notice of the suspension. The court affirmed the judgment of the lower court and held that the evidence was sufficient to show defendant had notice that his driver’s license was suspended. The court held that it would not reverse the judgment of the lower court unless the lower court decision was plainly wrong or without evidence to support it. The prosecutor’s statement that the commonwealth failed to prove defendant had received notice of the license suspension was not a stipulation, but a concession. It was not a factual agreement, but was a legal argument. The court affirmed defendant’s conviction for driving on a suspended license. The court found that the lower court did not err in finding that the evidence established that defendant was on notice that his driver’s license was suspended. The prosecutor’s statement that the commonwealth failed to prove defendant had notice of the license suspension was a concession, not a stipulation
