Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

A second offense of driving while suspended would lead to a jail sentence of 60 days to 1 year in jail under MA Gen. Laws 90.23. If the reason for the suspension was a DUI or because the state found you to be a habitual traffic offender, your sentence may involve a fine between $500 and $25,000, plus imprisonment for a maximum of two 1/2 years. Your license can also be permanently revoked.
