Driving on a revoked or suspended license

Driving on a revoked or suspended license.

People are often shocked to learn that a driving on a suspended or revoked license charge is a Class 1 misdemeanor, punishable by up to 12-months in jail and a $2,500 fine. Courts take driving on a suspended or revoked license charges seriously. The "I was just driving to work" excuse does not carry any weight in court.

A 3rd or subsequent driving on a suspended or revoked license offense carries a mandatory 10 days in jail. That is, if you are found guilty of a 3rd or subsequent driving on a suspended or revoked license offense, the Court has to give you at least 10 days in jail, but can award up to 12 months. The Court cannot suspend any of the mandatory time. Moreover, with mandatory time a person is required to serve all 10-days.There is no good time credit.
