Would my husband get jail time for driving with a suspended liscense?

Brooklyn, NY |

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 home early morning cause I'm pregnant and was in the hospital

  1. You should re-post in CT section. Under these facts, it is unlikely that he would get jail time, though I am unclear what he was driving if his car was stolen.

  2. You should re-post in CT section, not NY.
