Criminal Charges, Traffic Violations, Motor Vehicle Crimes

Misdemeanors are classified as less serious crimes than felonies, punishable by up to two and-a-half years of jail time, though most often misdemeanors are a threat to your record, possibly a serious one, along with possible fines or other consequences. Common misdemeanors include shoplifting, many types of drug possession, disorderly conduct, and operating under the influence (OUI).

There are a number of different types of traffic violations which, depending on the offense and whether you have had past convictions, can sometimes carry very serious consequences, including a rise in your insurance rates, suspension of your license, a negative impact on your record, new limits to which types of jobs you are allowed to take, and even jail time.

 

Such offenses could include:

  • Speeding tickets

  • Reckless driving

  • Driving without insurance

  • Driving without a license (or a revoked, suspended, or expired license)
