At Law Office of Jesse P. Duran, our Lancaster traffic offenses lawyer has over a decade of legal experience defending clients throughout our community of all types of offenses. If you or someone you know is facing a serious traffic offense, we highly recommend that you seek our help.
Serious Traffic Offenses Demand Serious Representation
Serious traffic offenses call for qualified legal representation from an experienced criminal defense lawyer. Misdemeanors carry penalties of up to a year in jail, heavy fines, and may involve restitution to victims, license suspensions, substance abuse treatment or education, and more. Felony traffic offenses such as vehicular manslaughter or repeat DUI will carry even more serious consequences.
Such offenses can include:
- Driving without a valid license
- Driving with a suspended or revoked license
- Hit and run or fleeing the scene of an accident
- Reckless driving
- Engaging in speed contests on public streets
- Fleeing from a police officer
- Driving the wrong way on a divided highway
- Causing bodily injury, property damage, or death in any of the above
- Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
Some charges can cost you thousands in fines and even put you at risk of a jail sentence. For example, if you are charged with engaging in a speed contest, you could face up to $1,000 in fines, up to 90 days in jail, and a 30-day vehicle impoundment. For a hit and run, you could face up to 6 months of jail time and $1,000 in fines.
For reckless driving, you could spend up to 90 days in jail, $1,000 in fines along with other fees, and have a misdemeanor reckless driving charge on your record for 10 years. Reckless driving may also lead to the cancellation of your vehicle insurance or dramatically increased rates.
