OPINION NOT REPORTED
MEMORANDUM OPINION BY JULIA K. HEARTHWAY, Judge.
Cynthia Diveglia appeals from an order of the Court of Common Pleas of Adams County (trial court), affirming a driver's license suspension imposed by the Department of Transportation, Bureau of Driver Licensing (Department). We affirm.
Diveglia was charged with fleeing and evading a police officer in violation of Section 3733 of the Vehicle Code, 75 Pa.C.S. § 3733, on November 16, 2014. (Reproduced Record (R.R.) at 33a.) She was convicted of the offense on January 7, 2016. On January 21, 2016, information related to that conviction was electronically transmitted to the Department. (Id. at 41a.) On January 28, 2016, the Department mailed Diveglia a letter notifying her that her driver's license was suspended for one year, effective March 3, 2016, as a result of her conviction. (Id. at 9-11a.) Diveglia appealed to the trial court on February 11, 2016. (Id. at 6-7a.)
On September 8, 2016, a hearing was held before the trial court. The Department introduced a conviction report to demonstrate Diveglia's underlying conviction. The conviction report included four documents: (1) a cover page certifying that the pages in the report were true copies of Department records; (2) a copy of the official notice of suspension mailed to Diveglia; (3) a copy of a DL-21 Form
On September 19, 2016, the trial court dismissed the appeal, affirming the Department's suspension. (Id. at 86a.) Diveglia appealed to this Court on October 11, 2016, arguing that the admission of the DL-21 Form was improper under section 1550(d)(2) of the Vehicle Code, which provides that in an appeal from a driver's license suspension,
75 Pa.C.S. § 1550(d)(2).
(R.R. at 135a.) The DL-21 Form is a standardized Department form that states, "[u]nder Section 6323 of the Vehicle Code, it is mandatory that the Clerk of Courts report all violations of the Vehicle Code." (R.R. at 140a.) In a space provided for a signature by the Clerk of Courts, the form reads, "ELECTRONICALLY TRANSMITTED 01/20/2016." Id.
Upon review of these documents and consideration of section 1550(d)(2) of the Vehicle Code, the trial court determined that the conviction report "complies with the requirements of the statutory exception to the hearsay rule set forth in 75 [Pa.C.S.] § 1550" and was properly admitted. (1925(a) Opinion, October 25, 2016, at 3-4.) "The admission of evidence is committed to the sound discretion of the trial court and will not be reversed absent an abuse of discretion. . . Discretion is abused where the law is not applied." Commonwealth v. Chamberlain, 731 A.2d 593, 595 (Pa. 1999) (citations omitted). In this case, we cannot conclude that the trial court abused its discretion by admitting the DL-21 Form under section 1550(d)(2) of the Vehicle Code. The Department's certification and the DL-21 Form itself indicate that DL-21 Form originated from the Adams County Clerk of Courts.
In Miles v. Department of Transportation, Bureau of Driver Licensing, (Pa. Cmwlth. No. 512 C.D. 2016, filed January 12, 2017) (unreported),
This Court reversed, finding that "[t]here is no support for the proposition that Section 1550(d)(2) of the Vehicle Code prohibits the courts from sending conviction detail through an administrative office." Id. at 5. Section 1550(d)(2) provides for the admission of records received by the Department electronically without restriction on the means of electronic transmission. The Court concluded "that the hearsay exception provided in Section 1550(d)(2) permits the admission of Conviction Detail reports that the Department receives from courts by way of the AOPC." Id. at 6.
In Miles, we concluded that when the Department's certified record shows that an electronic transmission of conviction information originates with a court, it is irrelevant whether it passes through an administrative office en route to the Department for the purposes of section 1550(d)(2) of the Vehicle Code. Similarly, where the Department certifies that it has received an electronic transmission of conviction information by way of a clerk of courts, such information is admissible under section 1550(d)(2).
AND NOW, this 14
