Man receives felony charge for driving with suspended license

Driving with a suspended license can open a person up to the risk of some very severe consequences, especially in the case of multiple offenses. Sometimes, a person can even be unaware that their license is suspended. For example, a traffic ticket that is overlooked and accidentally not paid can eventually lead one to have their license suspended. A driver may not even be aware of this until they are stopped for something or receive notification from the DMV. No matter the reason, New York drivers should take caution to avoid unnecessary penalties.

For one New York City man, a drive through Southampton Village ended up with his car being taken away from local law enforcement authorities and with him being charged with a felony crime. Police stopped the man shortly before 11:00 am on a Saturday morning for a traffic violation. The article reporting the story did not indicate what type of violation he was stopped for.

During the stop, it was discovered that he was driving with a suspended driver’s license. In addition, the man license was found to have been suspended a total of 20 times. The 2011 Ford Escape SUV was removed and he now faces a first degree felony charge for aggravated unlicensed operation, or AUO.

A driver facing charges for driving with a suspended license could face misdemeanor or felony charges depending on the situation. In either case, it can be very helpful for the accused person to talk to an attorney to fully understand his or her rights.
