Being charged with a criminal traffic offense is a serious matter that not only may affect your driving privileges, but may result in various terms of incarceration in either jail or prison, depending on the specific criminal traffic charges you are facing, your prior driving and criminal history, and other elements of the alleged criminal traffic crime in question.
Some criminal traffic crimes may carry conviction penalties that include mandatory minimums for your drivers license to be suspended, revoked for a specific period of time, and in severe cases, revoked permanently.
If you have been arrested and charged with a traffic crime, seek the advice and representation of experienced legal counsel.
Examples of criminal traffic offenses include, but are not limited to:
When facing criminal traffic charges, every piece of evidence must be reviewed. All witnesses must be interviewed, and the actions of law enforcement must be examined.
When arrested for a traffic crime or other criminal charges, you have rights that must be protected. You have the right to have competent legal counsel present your side of the events in question in an effort to prove your innocence. Your legal counsel may also negotiate on your behalf to have the charges dropped, reduced, to allow you to enter into a plea deal or diversion program when available, and to negotiate for probation instead of jail or prison time.
