Driving While Suspended (DWS) is one type of crime, among many others, that is commonly seen in Molalla Municipal Court, as well as every other court that handles criminal matters. If you are charged with this, having a local lawyer help you may be the best decision you can make regarding your case.
There are many different types of driving while suspended. This can be an infraction, a misdemeanor, or a felony. It is important to understand the risks involved and potential consequences that could arise from your particular driving while suspended situation.
The most common situation is when someone is caught driving after being charged with a DUI, which was the result of a breath test failure or refusal. In many situations the court has not yet suspended your license for the DUI (and may not), but the DMV has suspended your license for a breath test failure or refusal. This is commonly a misdemeanor charge of driving while suspended, but it can come with very serious penalties, for example: jail, fines, and probation.
Another common situation (the most serious situation) is when your license is suspended for a felony assault (or other similar charge). In this situation you can be charged with a B felony, and even worse, the sentencing classification for this crime is a 6. This means that, depending on your criminal record, you could be looking at 25-30 months in prison.
