Most people convicted of drunk driving will have their driver’s licenses suspended. In addition, drivers with excessive points on their licenses or those convicted of other vehicular offenses can find themselves without a license to drive. Finally, your license could be suspended for reasons unrelated to driving, such as failing to pay child support.
Mandatory Suspension And Penalties
Having your license suspended can put you at risk for being charged with driving while under suspension. If your license was originally suspended under Connecticut’s sentencing rules for DUI, you face a penalty of 30 days in jail for a first-time offense and up to a year for subsequent convictions. In other cases, a conviction can result in an even longer suspension. Because of the severity of the penalties, it is critical to have an experienced legal advocate who can mount an effective defense against charges of driving while under suspension.
