  1. I hope you have a paid up 6 month policy to show the prosecutor at court. Have a good reason and ask for a settlement on a plea of guilty. The offer shouldn't include jail time.

    I am trying to give you a general answer to your question. We do not have an attorney-client relationship by this response on the avvo website. I have not been retained to represent you. I am licensed to practice law in Kentucky and in federal court in this state and the Southern District of Indiana. You need to seek legal advice from an attorney licensed to practice in your area..


  2. If you are convicted of no insurance, it carries automatic 6 month license suspension. The court will not be real happy if you failed to complete the program since all that is required to complete KAP is keep insurance and pay monitoring fee.
