Driving While License Suspended in Atlanta
Defense for Traffic Violations
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.
