Sedalia Police conducted a traffic stop in the area of the 2000 block of South Limit Avenue on the evening of January 21st. Following an investigation on scene, a suspicious temporary license plate was sized, and believed to be a forgery.
*Caliz-Maquin had been issued citations on October 13, 2023 for No Operator’s License and Failure to Maintain Financial Responsibility. Since the suspect didn’t have a Missouri driver’s license then and does not have one now, the charge may be bumped from a Class D misdemeanor to a Class A misdemeanor, which could result in jail time up to a year and a fine. The notice of suspension may refer to 302.400 through 302.425, which states that anyone under 21 years of age may have his or her driving privilege suspended for 90 days for a first offense (or revoked for one year for a subsequent offense) for any one of the following reasons:
