Driving while suspended is a serious charge in Maryland. There's usually two parts to this type of case: a trial, and then an administrative hearing. The DUI is part of your record, and the court will look at that. I've seen second offenses dropped before, but I've also seen people go to jail. I would recommend retaining an attorney to represent you. An attorney can evaluate your case, talk to the prosecutor, and maybe get you some kind of plea deal.
