I was cited for Driving on a Suspended License (14601.1A) in San Bernardino Ca. as a result of a previous DUI conviction.1. Prior to this up-coming court case, my restricted license has since been issued. Will it be suspended again? Should the drivers license be presented to the Judge? 2. Will jail time be involved? If so, what actual time will be served in this County? 3. What might the fine be ?
This is a misdemeanor. You need to consult with local counsel ASAP before your court date as fine amounts differ from county to county. Seek out a local traffic or criminal attorney to assist you. At the very least schedule a free consultation before the court date. Hope this helps. Jail or work program can be an issue as well as a criminal record if you are convicted.
1). No, not as a result of the conviction for suspended license. However, a 14601 conviction carries 2 points on dmv record. As does a DUI. 4 points in 12 months means dmv will deem you a negligent operator and try to suspend your license for having too many points. You can get a hearing to contest this.
2) Potentially. Though, what's more likely is work release on the probation violation for the DUI and on the new 14601 charge.
3) expensive. Suspended license charges due to DUI are treated virtually the same as a DUI when it comes to fines and many other terms of probation.
With a good attorney, you should be able to mitigate the damage.
Any information provided through Avvo.com in response to a question is not, and cannot be considered a formation of any Attorney-Client relationship. Questioner understands that the nature of this system allows only for a cursory review of case information, and more detailed information should not be divulged in this public forum. As such, Questioner is recommended to contact an Attorney in order to discuss the full details of their case and a more specific advisement of potential rights and liabilities.
There is no way to determine what the District Attorney is going to ask for. It could be anything from probation to jail time. In my experience, an attorney may be able to negotiate a better deal than you can on your own. District Attorneys often go for the maximum penalty when defendants represent themselves.
Misdemeanor conviction, fines of apx 1200 bucks, information probation, however, with an attorney you can usually get the charges dismissed out of SB Main. No jail on a first offense 14601.1
I am licensed attorney who focuses on Serious DUI Cases such a 2nd DUIs, 3rd DUIs, 4th DUIs, and Felony DUIs and DMV hearings. I also have much experience handling car accident cases. Although the information I provide is helpful, it is not legal advice. Although Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, some attorneys prefer to add their own disclaimers to answers. You can set your custom disclaimer here and it will be automatically added to your answers. Do NOT include any direct solicitations or contact information.
I handle cases in Rancho all the time. Why don't you find a local lawyer who can work to squash this?
