There are several driving violations that can result in criminal charges. If you find yourself on the accused end of any of these kinds of charges, you need to find a qualified attorney to provide your defense. Gregory P. Issacs has extensive experience working driving violation cases and will work with you to put forth your best defense.
Driving with No Insurance
State law requires that you be able to show proof of insurance on your vehicle when requested by law enforcement. If you do not have current insurance for your vehicle, you can be charged with a crime. While many people think that they will only receive a ticket for driving without insurance, you can actually be arrested in some cases. The charge carries a Class C misdemeanor, the potential for a suspended drivers license, and a stop against your vehicle’s registration.
All of those penalties can take years to recover from and cause major damage to your life due to a lack of mobility. Make sure to defend yourself strongly against these charges by retaining the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney like Gregory P. Issacs.
Driving without a License
Much like driving without insurance, driving without a license in the state of Tennessee is a Class C misdemeanor. You will likely receive a ticket, fines, and a mark against your driving record. It can become more difficult for you to obtain a license in the future, and will likely cost you at least several hundred dollars when all is said and done.
If you feel you have been wrongly charged with driving without a license, Gregory P. Issacs can defend you against those charges. Come in for a free consultation and discuss the specifics of your case with us.
Driving with Revoked License
The act of operating a motor vehicle within the state of Tennessee while your license is revoked is a Class B misdemeanor and carries stiffer punishments than simply driving without a license. If your license has been revoked because of a serious driving violation such as vehicular assault or DUI, the punishment for driving with a revoked license can be quite severe. If convicted, you can face up to six months in prison and a fine of up to $1,000. Future violations of this law will result in increasingly harsh penalties.
