Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Ok, how about this. I spoke to the VA DMV and they said that they sent me a letter saying that "If I don't pay a ticket by a certain date, my license will be suspended". Then apparently I paid the ticket after that date, and my license remained suspended (I guess I had to pay a fee to reinstate my license). Technically however they never sent me a letter saying that my license had been suspended. Is there a technicality in court saying that they have to notify me after my license is supended?
Any advice would be appreciated. I am a surgeon, here and at the time I was driving I was actually on my way to the hospital to see a patient. It wasn't exactly an emergency but could something like that help? Would you get a lawyer? What would you tell the prosecutor to get him on my side? This seems like a misunderstanding. And I would hate to have a misdemeanor. Thanks so much.
