Driving on a suspended or revoked license in Minnesota is an act that can result in a criminal charge. The penalties can include jail time and fines. How long the time in jail or the amount of the fines depends on the exact nature of the act. For instance, driving on a license that was canceled due to being inimical to public safety will result in a gross misdemeanor charge.
If you or a loved one has been charged with driving after suspension or revocation, it is important that you seek the representation of a Minnesota criminal attorney so you can defend yourself. Even if you did drive after suspension or revocation, you have rights that need protected and there is still a possibility that you would not have to pay the maximum penalties in the case.
Quality Criminal Defense
The quality of your defense is going to have an influence on your case. The reason why your license was suspended in the first place may be looked at. Perhaps it was failure to pay child support, failure to maintain insurance on your vehicle, leaving the scene of an accident, causing an accident that caused injury or death, or DWI.
Nonetheless, it all comes back to the fact that there was alleged operation of a motor vehicle on a suspended license. Your attorney will evaluate whether or not you were really driving and other circumstances in the case. Even if guilty, you have the opportunity to defend yourself and your future and to receive a better outcome in the matter than you would otherwise.
Fighting For Your Rights
