Driving on a suspended license can result in felony charges in Jacksonville, Florida. If The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) designates a driver as a Jacksonville habitual traffic offender, his or her license will be suspended for five years. That makes it a felony for the person to drive, and if the person does, it will result in an arrest for Jacksonville Driving on a Suspended License as a Habitual Traffic Offender.
As a Jacksonville Habitual Traffic Offender Lawyer, I have met too many people that have faced felony charges, and even became convicted felons, due to Jacksonville Habitual Traffic Offender arrests. It is important that Jacksonville Habitual Traffic Offender Lawyers work hard to prevent this from occurring. There are ways to defend this charge. For instance, the law itself, in Florida Statute Section 322.34(10)(a)(6) lays out a defense.
