The only time I have seen it done it did result in two surcharges. However, it has been my experience that this is very dependent on the officer from the state who handles this part.
The criminal issue is handled by the DA and judge but the drives license issues are typically addressed initially by the DA and judge but ultimately reside in the hands of the state driver's license officers, which is a different organization altogether. They are not necessarily bound by what the judge does in the criminal case.
Is there a reason that he is not getting a lawyer for this?
