Accused of Driving Under Suspension?
You may be able to fight the charge!
When you get a suspension for a DUI offense, your license becomes DUI suspended and remains DUI suspended until you get your license restored. Even if you are serving a suspension for a non-DUI related offense when you get your DUI, once you get a DUI suspension you are considered “DUI Suspended”. That means every time you are caught driving on a suspended license, you are considered “DUI Suspended” even if your DUI suspension didn’t start.
The penalties for driving on a DUI suspension are sometime more severe than the actual DUI offense. Driving on a DUI suspended license carries a mandatory minimum term of imprisonment of 60 days. If it is your third driving on a DUI suspension offense, you are looking at a mandatory minimum term of imprisonment of not less than 2 years! In addition to jail time, driving on a DUI suspension carries an additional license suspension of at least one year and possibly longer if you have prior DUI suspension convictions.
