License Suspension in Florida
There are many reasons why the state of Florida can suspend your license and even revoke it. They include:
- Failure to pay child support
- Failure to appear in court
- Failure to pay traffic tickets
- Habitual traffic offenses
- Drug charges, including misdemeanors and felonies
- Criminal mischief
- Petty or grand theft
- Leaving the scene of an accident
- Reckless driving
In Florida you are deemed a Habitual Traffic Offender (HTO) if you are convicted of certain traffic violations three times within 5 years. These traffic violations include reckless driving, DUI, leaving the scene of an accident and failure to render aid at an accident scene. If you are found to be an HTO, your license can be suspended for 5 years. These are very serious charges and skilled attorney Catherine Drees can defend you.
Another serious charge in Florida is fleeing. If you use a car to flee that is a felony and considered aggravated fleeing if you do anything that endangers other people such as running through a stop light. An aggravated fleeing conviction means a mandatory minimum of three years in prison. These are very harsh sentencing guidelines. Let us immediately start working on your defense today.
