Accused was convicted of operating motor vehicle while intoxicated. Accused was ordered to pay fine and prohibited from driving for one year. Accused appealed convicted. Accused brought application for order saying license suspension pending appeal. Application granted. Appeal was not frivolous. It would cause hardship to accused if stay was not granted, as it would interfere with her duties as social worker. Accused did not pose danger to public if stay of her driver’s license suspension were granted.
