Getting your driver’s license suspended can happen for lotsa reasons – unpaid tickets, too many points on your license, a DUI conviction, failure to pay child support, etc. It’s a huge pain, but life goes on, right? You still gotta get to work and school and run errands. So it may be tempting to just keep driving even though your license got suspended. But that decision can get you in big trouble!! Here’s what you need to know about the penalties for driving with a suspended license in Michigan.
There’s a bunch of ways you can lose your license privileges in Michigan:
It doesn’t even matter if you didn’t know your license got suspended – if you keep driving, you’re breaking the law. The cops and the courts don’t care if you “forgot” about the suspension or didn’t get the paperwork in the mail. You’re expected to know the status of your driving privileges.
Let’s say you get pulled over and find out your license is suspended. Not good! For a first offense, here’s what you can expect:
Those penalties are no joke. 93 days in jail would seriously disrupt your life, not to mention losing your ability to drive for even longer. The fines and fees aren’t cheap either. And you could end up with a criminal record if convicted.
If you get caught driving on a suspended license more than once, the penalties get even tougher:
Multiple offenses show you have no regard for the law. So prosecutors and judges will throw the book at you. Lengthy jail time, huge fines, and losing your license and vehicle are very real possibilities.
There are some circumstances that can make a suspended license charge even more serious:
If you cause an accident while driving on a suspended license, you’ll face felony charges instead of a misdemeanor. The penalties will increase dramatically:
When an accident with injuries or fatalities is involved, prosecutors won’t mess around. These cases often end in lengthy prison sentences.
If you already have multiple prior convictions for driving on a suspended license, new charges will be taken very seriously. Judges have little patience for repeat offenders, so you can expect:
If your license was already suspended for an alcohol or drug offense like OWI or DUI, driving on the suspended license will be treated more harshly. These cases show a blatant disregard for the law and for public safety.
There is one small bit of good news – in some cases, you may be able to get a restricted license that allows driving for certain purposes like work, school, or medical appointments. An ignition interlock device is usually required as well.
Talk to a lawyer to see if you qualify for a restricted license. But only drive when absolutely necessary, and follow the restrictions exactly. Any violation could mean new criminal charges!
Facing charges for driving on a suspended license is scary. Jail time, huge fines, and losing your license and vehicle are all on the line.
But an experienced criminal defense lawyer can help! Here’s how:
Having skilled legal representation maximizes your chances of the best possible outcome. So don’t go it alone against the criminal justice system. Get help from lawyers who know these cases inside and out.
Driving on a suspended license brings severe consequences in Michigan. Even a first offense can mean jail, fines, and an even longer suspension. For repeat offenses or cases involving accidents, the penalties are even worse.
Your best bet is to not drive at all until your suspension is lifted. But if you do get charged, speak to an attorney immediately. An experienced lawyer can often negotiate reduced charges or penalties on your behalf. With so much at stake, it’s critical to get professional help defending your rights. Don’t leave your fate in the hands of the courts – fight back with a lawyer on your side!
