Question Details:

Does state have to prove I was operating the vehicle?I do have a suspended license and was taken to jail (this is first offense). I want to fight it and see if A) the officer doesn't show up so that it might be dismissed or B) can I request that the state prove I was operating the vehicle and maybe the office won't show up and I may get lucky and get it dismissed. Should I get an attorney for this case. ? I'm in Tulsa, OK.
