In most states Driving on a suspended license is a criminal misdemeanor offense. Often times these can be reduced to a lower offense, or sometimes even a civil infraction to avoid any automatic driver license suspensions from the DMV as well as a criminal conviction. My advice is to consult a criminal defense attorney in your area to help you successfully resolve this matter.
