    Answered . If your husband's license was suspended for a DWI, the state will look for jail unless his attorney can convince the court that there were mitigating circumstances behind his decision to drive. If it was suspended for a non dwi event and if he does not have multiple convictions for driving with a suspended license than he will not, in all liklihood, be looking at jail.
