Driving on a Suspended License in Ohio
Seek Advice from a Cincinnati Criminal Defense Attorney
The state of Ohio can revoke your driver's license for any number of reasons. It is a crime to drive while your license is suspended or revoked. If you were arrested for driving with a suspended license, you need a Cincinnati criminal attorney who will stand up for you in court.
Punishments for Driving with a Suspended License
Driving on a suspended license is actually very common. Whether due to actual license suspension for DUI or traffic violations or lapsed insurance coverage, if a person is pulled over without a valid license, they could be facing serious charges.
A conviction for driving under suspension includes possible penalties of:
- 6 months in jail
- $1,000 in fines
- 1 year of additional license suspension
- 6 points added to your driver's license
- Additional BMV reinstatement fee
Since driving is a necessity for many people, a suspended license is often not an option they can afford. This can lead to multiple arrests for driving under suspension.
With a skilled Cincinnati criminal defense lawyer on your side, it may be possible to argue for a lesser charge as part of a plea bargain. A dismissal of your charges may even be possible. A lawyer may also be able to have your driving privileges reinstated after a short period of time.
