Facing a Driving With a Suspended License Charge?

For many who have been charged with or convicted of a DWI, their license is often suspended.

Serious Penalties If You Are Convicted of Driving With a Suspended License

New York does not take suspended license charges lightly. Driving with a suspended license can also lead to AUO charges ("Aggravated Unlicensed Operation"). Depending on the degree of severity, the penalties can increase. The court will look at your record, any prior criminal history or other AUO violations.

The potential penalties include:

  • Third-degree AUO: A misdemeanor charge with up to 30 days of jail time and $500 in fines.
  • Second-degree AUO: A misdemeanor charge with up to 180 days of jail time and a $500 minimum in fines.
  • First-degree AUO: A felony charge with potential state prison time and up to $5,000 in fines.

In addition to some of these potential fines are surcharges. As you can see the penalties are significant in New York. The best thing you can do is to consult with an experienced criminal defense lawyer about your charges.
