If you were charged with VTL 509, this is a violation and not a crime. It has a maximum possible penalty of 15 days in jail and a fine of up to $300. In my experience, if you renew your license by your court date and show it to the ADA in court, you can usually be able to get the ADA to agree to dismiss the violation.
