i paid the first one off
We all need more information such as: Are you on probation for your first 14601? What court is your 2nd 14601 out of? Why is your license suspended and can you get it reinstated? In fact, the last question is the most important. I suggest that you go to the DMV (don't drive there!) pay for a "long form" copy of your driver's history and contact one of the attorneys that has responded to your question. Most attorneys give free consultations though you need to bring in the DMV printout and any other paperwork you have to obtain a solid answer. Jail time may be avoided if you try to resolve the underlying issues. Good luck.
