Don’t let a Massachusetts Criminal Charge Ruin your Life!
Charged with Operating on a Suspended License or other Criminal Motor Vehicle Charge in Massachusetts?
Being arrested on an Operating on a Suspended License charge is a difficult and humiliating experience, and I sympathize with what you are going through. In many cases, a person may not have been aware that their license was under suspension. If you’ve received a few speeding tickets that you haven’t paid, and maybe you’ve moved so the registry paperwork never caught up with you, I’m sure you were shocked to find yourself being arrested or summons to court on a criminal charge.
Driving on a suspended license may not sound like a serious offense, but it is a criminal charge and must be taking seriously. A guilty plea or verdict on the Massachusetts criminal charge of operating on a suspended license carries with it potentially serious penalties which depend on the reason your license was originally suspended. The penalty may include fines of up to $10,000, and 60 days to 2 1/2 years in jail.
