Miami Suspended License Violation Attorney
A DWLA charge turns on whether or not you had knowledge of the suspension. Maybe notice was sent to a wrong address, an old address, or got lost in the mail. At times, you may not even be aware that your license has been suspended because of a failure to pay traffic tickets or a similar situation. You are then pulled over for a simple traffic violation and find that you are facing criminal charges for DWLS.
The penalties for a DWLS vary depending on how many prior convictions you have for DWLS. Because knowledge of the suspension is critical, Driving With a Suspended License Unknowingly (without knowledge), is a civil infraction punishable by a fine and 3 points against your license.
- A first offense for DWLS is a second-degree misdemeanor with a maximum sentence of sixty (60) days in jail
- A second DWLS offense is a first-degree misdemeanor punishable by up to one (1) year in jail
- A third offense is actually a third-degree felony with a maximum five (5) year prison term
