The East Providence attorney who specializes in drunk-driving cases allegedly lied to obtain a Massachusetts driver's license after her Rhode Island license was suspended when she was charged with a DUI for the second time in a year.
Layne Savage allegedly lied in the application about her license not being revoked or suspended in another state, according to Amy Kempe, a spokeswoman for the RI Attorney General's office in a story on WPRI-TV. Savage got the new license on Jan. 24, the day after her RI license was suspended, Kempe said.
Savage turned herself in last Friday, Feb. 1, after an arrest warrant charging her with a bail violation was issued by District Court Judge William C. Clifton. The request for a warrant came from the attorney general's office.
New conditions were set by the court for her release on bail: Savage must not operate a motor vehicle anywhere; the court will monitor her participation in substance abuse counseling; she will be allowed to travel to Florida for substance abuse treatment, and she must surrender the Massachusetts driver's license.
