Florida Habitual Driver’s License Suspension Can Be Undone

Lakeland, FL (Law Firm Newswire) March 1, 2013 – A habitual driver’s license (HTO) suspension may be reversed. Speak to an experienced criminal defense lawyer.

“If you’re about to have your driver’s license suspended, contact my office right away, before you attend traffic court. There are ways to avoid losing your license for five years and I can help you with that process. Or, if you are under a Florida HTO suspension, I can tell you if you qualify to get your full license back or assist you in getting a hardship driver’s license,” outlined Thomas Grajek, a Lakeland criminal defense attorney.

A habitual traffic offender is one who, over a five-year period, has garnered three or more convictions. Those convictions may include, but are not limited to: DUI, driving with a suspended license, involuntary or voluntary manslaughter in the operation of a vehicle, failure to stop and offer aid after an injury or fatal accident, and racking up 15 convictions for moving traffic offenses. “Offenses committed in another state also count towards a five-year HTO suspension,” added Grajek.

For drivers that have been arrested driving while their license is suspended for being a habitual traffic offender, they face up to five years in prison for a third degree felony. “In short, if in any five-year time frame, you get three traffic convictions, you lose your Florida driver’s license for five years,” Grajek explained.

Is it possible to undo a five-year habitual traffic offender’s license suspension? “In some instances, yes, it is,” said Grajek. “I may be able to file a motion with the court, asking them to withhold judgment on a civil case, such as driving with license suspended. That would remove the 5-year suspension and you would have full driving privileges.”

The ability of a criminal defense lawyer to undo a five year habitual traffic offender’s license suspension largely depends on what offences they have been convicted of. “Never assume you are out of luck. Call me first and we can discuss your situation,” he added.

  • Arrest made in Polk County "SWAT"ting incident involving "anonymous" calls to police to lure SWAT team to high school.
    A Canadian juvenile was arrested in the recent Polk County “swatting” case.  “SWATting” is when an individual attempts to lure the SWAT time to respond to a location for a fake threat of some type. Polk County deputies allege the teen anonymously placed hoax calls to law enforcement officials in an effort to lure SWAT teams to respond to Ft. Meade high school over the past four-months.  Deputies say the investigation began in September, when an unidentified male called the sheriff’s office and Fort Meade High School and said he was going to “drive to Fort Meade High School in […]
  • Just in time for Christmas, Polk Sheriff Grady Judd's prostitution sting results in 61 arrests.
    Sheriff Grady Judd will hold a press conference today to announce the results of the latest Polk Prostitution sting from last week.  The sting was part of a  undercover operation targeting individuals who respond to online advertisements on Backpage.com.  The online ads are usually listings for escort or massage services, but once the person responds to the hotel, the undercover deputies try to make an arrest for an illegal activity.  These undercover officers can be very aggressive and often do most of the talking.  The sheriff was also targeting human trafficking which is a much more serious felony offense. There are some harsh […]
  • Medical marijuana amendment fails in Florida, pot still illegal to possess. What defenses do you have to a possession of cannabis case?
    Florida’s medical marijuana amendment did not pass yesterday in the election.  Even though a majority of the voters voted in favor of passing the medical marijuana amendment, receiving 58% of the vote, it fell 2% shy needed to pass.  In 2006, Florida voters decided all constitutional amendments needed a “super majority” to pass (60% instead of 50%). Ironically, that amendment that now requires a super majority, only passed with 57.8% of the vote.  Whether or not the issue is placed back on the ballot is unknown at this time.  John Morgan of Morgan & Morgan who spearheaded the campaign had previously […]
