    Answered . I would recommend that you hire a criminal defense lawyer since you are facing a criminal charge. The charge of Driving While Suspended - Prior is a Class A Misdemeanor and carries a possible sentence from a minimum of 0 days in jail up to 1 year in jail. It's impossible to know what type of sentence you would receive if you are found guilty without knowing more details about your case. A defendant's criminal history and other factors may be important in determining what type of sentence a defendant receives.
