Overland Park License Suspension Attorney
How a License Suspension Will Affect You
Getting your driver's license suspended can have a serious impact not only on your life, but on your livelihood as well. A license suspension can prevent you from being able to get to work, make money, pick up your children from school, go shopping for food for your family and many other daily activities. Without a driver's license how will you get around?
Under Kansas state law, there are various different circumstances which might result in a license suspension. If you receive three moving violations, you could have your license suspended. After three serious traffic offenses over a five year period, such as driving without insurance, DUI, or leaving the scene of an accident, you could have your license suspended for three years.
You could be facing felony charges if you receive numerous speeding tickets and are caught driving with a suspended license. The state of Kansas has severe consequences for those who are caught driving while their license is suspended. The first conviction is considered a class B misdemeanor with an additional 90 day license suspension and up to six months in jail. If you are convicted a second time, it is considered a class A misdemeanor and you could be required to pay a $2500 fine and serve up to a year in jail. You would also receive an extended license suspension.
Since Kansas does not have a "hardship license", which would allow you to be able to drive to and from work, go to and from school and more, it is essential that you consult with an Overland Park criminal defense attorney at our firm right away. By doing so, we will be able to rapidly review your circumstances, analyze the course of action which best suits your legal needs and advise you of your options. Any delay could not only jeopardize your ability to legally drive, but could put your freedom at risk as well.
