We now live in NY but he was pulled over in new haven CT for driving 85 mph on a 50 mph highway..his liscence is still suspended but needed to be reinstated this year.the only reason he was in CT is because his car got stolen and he had to leave an drive his cousins vehicle home early morning cause I'm pregnant and was in the hospital
Depends mainly upon the reason for the suspension. If the suspension was for DUI there is a mandatory 30 days in jail. If it was just a suspension that would be over (like sixty days starting six months ago) BUT you (he) had not filed for reinstatement ( and paid the $100 reinstatement fee to the DMV ). Most prosecutors would allow time to get the reinstatement and then drop the charges once you regain a vailid license.
Driving under suspension is one of the "Crimes" that is receiving more attention from prosecutors.
