A check of Crossen’s driver’s license revealed it had been suspended 17 times.

Crossen, 57, of Cherry Hill, New Jersey was charged with Aggravated Unlicensed Operation of a Motor Vehicle 1st Degree, a felony.

A criminal charge is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
