Driving while Suspended or Revoked
Driving while your license is suspended or revoked carries stiff penalties. Fines can range from $500 to $1500, jail time is mandatory after the second offense, and your license suspension period will be extended. All of these penalties can increase in severity if the offense occurs in combination with other infractions, such as driving while intoxicated, being in possession of drugs or drug paraphernalia, driving without insurance, driving in a school zone, or having multiple driving while suspended offenses on your record.
There is not much ground for defense against a driving while suspended charge, but cases have been won under special circumstances. For example, if the original suspension is shown to have been improperly administered, the charge could be dismissed. Other cases involve motorists who were not aware that they had to pay a restoration fee at the end of their suspension period. This could result in the continuation of the suspension without the driver’s knowledge. If correct action was not taken to properly inform the defendant, then it is possible to avoid a conviction. These are just a couple examples of defensible cases for drivers facing driving while suspended charges.
