Defending Your Suspended License Violation in Rockland County
You may have needed to operate your vehicle for emergency, personal or professional reasons. I understand that a suspended license robs you of an essential part of your everyday life. In order to get places in a time-friendly, convenient manner, you need a car. Without legal permission to drive, your day-to-day routine and obligations can suffer.
I am dedicated to helping you combat the heavy consequences associated with operating your vehicle on a suspended license, otherwise known as aggravated unlicensed operation (AUO):
- First degree AUO: If you are driving under the influence and/or have a certain amount of previous convictions.
- Up to 4 years in jail
- Between $1,000 and $5,000 fines
- Second degree AUO: If your license was suspended due to a DUI or you received a previous conviction of third-degree AUO in the past 18 months.
- Up to 180 days in jail
- $500 to $1,000 fines
- Third degree AUO: If you knowingly drive on a suspended license.
- Up to 30 days in jail
- $200 to $500 fines
On top of that, restoring your driving privilege requires fees and lengthy paperwork. Call my office at (845) 638-9200 or contact me online to learn how I can help you!
