An individual’s drivers license can be suspended for a variety of reasons, too many points, a DUI, no insurance, failure to pay child support, FTA, among many others. When a person is caught driving while their privilege to operate a motor vehicle has been suspended or revoked the consequences an be quite severe. Michigan Law requires a Judge to impose jail time in cases where the suspension was due to a previous drunk driving conviction and if a driver has multiple priors for the same offense or is currently on probation for another matter the Court can incarcerate someone for up to one year, or more, in the County Jail. Shockingly, a Court conviction for driving on a suspended license in some cases carries a higher punishment than for drunk driving.
