Thank you for your question.

What was it suspended for?

failure to appear
Lawyer: NateLawAnswers, Attorney replied 6 years ago
That's good. Penalties are more severe if it was for a DUI or being a Habitual Traffic Offender.

Upon a first conviction in California, by imprisonment in a county jail for not less than five days or more than six months and by a fine of not less than three hundred dollars ($300) or more than one thousand dollars ($1,000).

It is quite possible, however, that a conditional plea can be entered where either he goes to a class or presents with a valid license. If he doesn't have an extensive record, expect an option that avoids jail time.

I will be happy to follow up with you if you have additional questions. In the meantime, please click ACCEPT so that I can get credit for answering your question.

Thanks!

i live in nebraska now so would the outcome be any different?
Lawyer: NateLawAnswers, Attorney replied 6 years ago
No. It depends on where you were stopped. You would be subject to California law if that's where the charge occurred.

Well, now you know what happens if you ever go back to California!

Nebraska is a little better. Up to six months in jail (likely probation - almost certainly, probation), up to a $2000.00 fine (unlikely) and additional loss of license for one year (extremely likely).

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
