Driving Without Privileges (DWP) Passionate Criminal Defense & Family Law Attorneys

Driving Without Privileges (DWP) Defense Attorney

Driving Without Privileges is not as serious a crime as it used to be in Idaho. However, in some cases, a DWP can be a misdemeanor with jailtime.

Driving Without Privileges is actually an area of law that has become more lenient, overall. Until recently, failure to pay a fine could result in license suspension. Plus, it was a misdemeanor to drive on a suspended license. In March 2018 the law was updated so that licenses would no longer be suspended for failure to pay a fine. Anyone who currently had their license suspended at that time had their privileges reinstated automatically. Plus, sentencing is now milder – a $150 fine for the first two instances.

However, you can get a misdemeanor charge in certain scenarios. A third conviction in a 5-year period is a misdemeanor. You can also get a misdemeanor if your DWP is coupled with DUI or reckless driving. If that describes you, you are vulnerable to jail time, a hefty fine, and other severe sentencing.

Criminal Defense for Your Case

A DWP attorney, a type of criminal defense lawyer, can be powerful for defense. Often people win these cases and get them thrown out of court. After all, there are perfectly valid reasons why someone might wrongly get cited for DWP.

The Department of Transportation system might have bugs. The agency might simply make a mistake. There may not have been the amount of notice to which you are entitled under the law. Your attorney can help you get your charges dismissed or reduced (the latter coupled with a lighter sentence).
