Driving While License Suspended in Atlanta
Atlanta Traffic Ticket Lawyer
Driving on a suspended license is a serious traffic violation that may
result in the imposition of a mandatory 2-day minimum jail sentence if
a driver is convicted. Driving without a license and driving while license
suspended are both what are referred to as "document charges"
because the driver does not have the proper documentation to lawfully
operate a motor vehicle. As of July 1st, 2008 the penalties for these and related offenses have become increasingly
serious, including mandatory imprisonment in a county correctional facility.
Because this is a misdemeanor offense in Georgia, a driver may face serious
penalties and the potential of having a criminal record that can interfere
with employment and financial opportunities.
If you were pulled over and were either arrested or given a citation for
driving with a suspended license, you will benefit from consulting an
attorney about this situation. Atlanta traffic ticket attorney Matthew
