N4T Investigators: License gone over records mistake, one man gets it back

Posted: Updated:

After years of walking to work because of a case of mistaken identity, Markes Lamay is finally getting a chance to drive.

All thanks to one man.

"I just felt sorry for Markes. He seemed like a really good guy who is a really hard working guy who was doing more than somebody should have to do to get his license back," said attorney Michael Redhair.

Redhair says he first heard about Lamay's story after watching News 4 Tucson.

At the time, Lamay was walking 4 miles to work everyday.

"Well I am so frustrated. I'm so angry and I know I don't want to do nothing stupid you can't do nothing stupid," said Lamay in December 2016.

Lamay had to walk, because his license was suspended after officials accidentally put someone else's ticket on his driving record.

Despite the mistake, Lamay was unable to get his license reinstated. Even though he says he tried to pay the fine and worked more than 140 hours of community service just to put everything behind him.

"I started it I did the community service. The whole 142 hours. I actually tried to pay the fine. I went down there Monday with 500 dollars cash. They said they can't accept 500 or the community service because that's not our deal," said Lamay.

After posting a message on Facebook, Redhair and Lamay connected, and the attorney helped Lamay get his license back free of charge.

"I feel good that I got to help somebody out and even more so because Markes is so appreciative of it."

Redhair says it was just a matter of helping Lamay through the legal process.
