Driving with a Suspended License in Fulton County
By: Attorney Alex Henson
In Georgia, driving with a suspended license can result in an arrest and conviction for a misdemeanor. If you are found guilty of driving on a suspended license you will face no less than two days in jail and a fine of $500 to $1000. You could also be placed on probation. Pleading guilty to driving on a suspended license will also result in a new suspension of your Georgia driver license for six months. You can avoid a new suspension by pleading nolo contendre (no contest), but this option is only available once every five years.
A second or third conviction of driving on a suspended license in a five-year period will result in no less than 10 days jail and a fine of $1000 to $2,500. You can also face additional penalties such as probation. A fourth conviction in a five-year period will be considered a felony and is punishable by 1 to 5 years in prison as wells as fines and probation. If you are arrested or cited for driving with a suspended license having a lawyer fight your case can result in a better outcome. Call us at (404) 581-0999 for a free consultation.
