Depending on the jurisdiction (state) of the offense, driving while suspended is most likely a moving offense and therefore a misdemeanor depending on the number of subsequent offenses. In order for the deputy to establish probable cause that the offense of driving while suspended was committed within his/her jurisdiction, he/she would have to actually see you in physical control of the motor vehicle. In order for a law enforcement officer to arrest or cite based on the commission of a misdemeanor offense, the officer must actually see the offense committed; however, with felonies, the officer must only establish probable cause that a felony was committed and the person arrested committed the offense.In all likelihood, the case against you was dismissed because the deputy either did not see you commit the offense and this fact was established prior to bringing the case to trial or the deputy failed to establish the probable cause in the charging instrument. A farfetched possiblity is that the deputy had no reason to establish contact with you in the first place; therefore, any charges stemming from the contact becomes "Fruit of the Poisonous Tree".Good thing this happened prior to Sept. 11, 2001 or you might be posting your message from some federal penitentiary.
