Driving While License Suspended
Driving while license suspended is one of the most common crimes in Florida. I know that you probably think possession of cannabis is the most common crime, or shoplifting, but in fact, it is driving while license suspended. They hand these criminal cases out like candy.
Some people get arrested, some people get the little citation arrest. Either way, you're going to court. You could go to jail for 60 days or get six months probation. You could go to jail for a year and get a year of probation. Or, some of them are a felony and you can get five years prison. There are all sorts of varieties of driving while license suspended and they snowball. They just get more and more serious so you want to attack this absolutely as quickly as you can.
Driving while license suspended in Florida doesn't have to be a crime. If you didn't have knowledge that your license was suspended, then, its not a crime.
Driving while license suspended isn't that big of a deal, is it?
We have a judge here in Central Florida and she will give everybody with this crime 30 days jail. I mean, it is unbelievable. People walk into court on a driving while license suspended and they think "this is no big deal". "I don't need an attorney, I'm going to go plea to this". And they, literally, don't walk out of the place. They have handcuffs, DCF has to take their kids from the hallway. It becomes a big mess.
Here's what you need to do when you get a driving while license suspended. I recommend you go and get a copy of your driving record. Next, take that driving record to somebody like me. I will go over that thing with a fine tooth comb. And, we will see what we can fix because the key to this operation is going to be (1) can we get your license back? Or (2) was the suspension even valid?
We're going to want to help you get your license back. You may think its impossible. There's no way. I've been doing this for 25 years. I've found ways where people were telling me there was no way to get their license back. You may be right, but let me try!
Let's take a look at your license, there's a lot of qualified attorneys out there that have wiggled a lot of people out of license trouble and I intend to do that for you.
So, that's my recommendation to you. When you get hit with one of these things, get with an attorney immediately. Be able to email, text, or bring to them a copy of your driving record. We'll go over it with a fine tooth comb and, a lot of these charges are fixable. So, I wish you luck on your case, take care.
