WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ARE ON PROBATION AND GET STOPPED WHILE DRIVING WITH A REVOKE LICENSE. WHAT CAN YOU DO TO GET A HARDSHIP LICENSE SO THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO WORK. CAN YOU GO TO JAIL FOR A YEAR FOR THIS. WILL THIS KEEP YOU FROM GETTING A HARDSHIP LICENSE?
Country relating to Question: United States
State (if USA): Missouri
NOTHING. ASKED LAWYER TO SEE ABOUT GETTING A HARDSHIP LICENSE BUT HAVE HEARD NOTHING BACK YET. HAS BEEN UNEMPLOYED SINCE NOV. AND UNION CALLED BACK TO WORK SO HAD TO GO.
Generally, in many courts, if you catch a new criminal case while on probation, the court will: 1) revoke your probation; 2) issue a warrant for your arrest; and 3) prepare to re sentence you on the original case.
Then, in addition to that, you can face a separate probation violation charge and
finally, you have to deal with the driving on a suspended drivers license charge.
But I cannot say I actually know what is going to happen to you.
Maybe the court that put you on probation never found out.
The effect of a conviction for driving on a suspended drivers license on your ability to get a hardship or restricted is: bad because it may add one or more "points" to your driver history report.
Wish I had better news.
The biggest part of the problem is not "I cannot get a drivers license after this" .... it is "The court revoked my probation and I have to be resentenced."
But it may not turn out to be that bad if you show up on time for everything, and say "I had to go to work".
They might give you a break.
The original charges can be reduce prior to trial.
And probation is often reinstated for people who have first time minor violations - like driving to work.
Happy to answer follow up. I am not licensed to practice there and I do not know the facts of your case.. .. so this is useless info.
