Buffalo, NY -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/20/2013 --Recently J John Sebastian represented a motorist in a local Buffalo NY area town court on the charge of New York Vehicle and Traffic Law 1225-c, Use of Mobile Telephone. The motorist was from out of state and was unfamiliar with the NY law banning use of cell phones while driving.

The motorist did not attend the hearing but instead appeared by an affidavit prepared by his lawyer. After extensive negotiation by J John Sebastian with the Town Prosecutor the matter was settled and the motorist was allowed to enter a plea to a reduced and amended charge of "illegal parking", a non-moving violation that carried no points against his license.
The motorist gave the following account: " Attorney J John Sebastian helped me out of a difficult position and I am grateful for his knowledge and guidance and will always use a hands free device in the future .."
Attorney J John Sebastian stated "distracted driving has become a very serious charge in NY State that can have dramatic effects on your ability to maintain a drivers license. It is important to consult with an experienced traffic attorney if you are so charged.."
