What happens if I am arrested for driving on a suspended license?
The charge of driving a suspended license can range from a misdemeanor offense all the way to a felony crime. Again, that’s dependent upon how many times in the past you’ve been caught driving under a suspended license. If the offense is an infraction here, it’s like a speeding ticket. And a lot of times a monetary fine will be exacted. If it’s a misdemeanor offense, an individual could be sentenced to probation or even jail time. Once it gets to the level of a felony offense, the courts are going to be dealing with that much more serious. And an individual can be sentenced up to five years in prison in certain circumstances for the simple crime of driving under a suspended license.
