Charges for Driving While Suspended
Defending a Charge of Driving While Suspended
Driving while your license is suspended or revoked is considered a serious crime. Consequences can include fines, jail time and an additional period of suspension, to be served consecutively to your current suspension period. If your license was originally suspended while you were driving under the influence, the penalties can even more severe and dangerous to you and your future.
If you have been charged with driving with a suspended license, enlisting the help of a Kansas City DUI lawyer is a crucial matter. Your attorney can review such matters as the actual status of your license, as it is possible that database errors have led to your charges. Whether or not you were actually given proper notice of the suspension can also be looked into, as you must knowingly commit this crime in order to be convicted. You must also have been given the opportunity for a hearing following notice of intended suspension; otherwise this violation of your rights can invalidate the new case against you.
