Thomas & Paulk Represents Client Charged with Driving on Revoked License

Earlier this month, our firm at Thomas & Paulk was able to represent a client who had been criminally charged with allegedly driving on a permanently revoked license. The penalty of having your license revoked permanently is one of the harshest forms of DUI penalties – something that can be penalized in cases involving DUI manslaughter as well as other severe DUI-related criminal charges.

This crime is tried under Florida Code §322.34. Per this section of the state law, any person who is found driving after their driver's license or driving privilege has been revoked will face a second degree misdemeanor per the first offense. For the second offense, it will be a first degree misdemeanor. Should it be a third or subsequent offense, it will be tried as a third degree felony.

To be found guilty of this crime, the defendant must have either been previously cited for a similar crime or must have admitted to knowing about the revocation. This element of knowledge can be proven through department records. In the case involving our client, they were facing felony criminal charges – with penalties that included up to five years of incarceration in prison.

We, however, were not deterred. We took on the case and through hard-work were able to keep the case in a county court. Beyond that, we were able to represent the client in such a way that they did not receive any jail time or probation as a result. At Thomas & Paulk, we hold the rights of our clients as the utmost priority. If you would like to learn more about our previous successes, do not hesitate to read through our case results.
