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.

- I am being investigated by the police, should I talk to the police officer BEFORE I get arrested?
Former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez was found guilty of murder today. After days of deliberation the jury returned their guilty verdict. Why did the jury find him guilty? The jurors said it was because Hernandez lied to owner Robert Kraft about the incident! New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft testified that Hernandez told him he was in a club at the time of Lloyd’s death. The problem with this statement was that the prosecution never told the jury exactly when Lloyd was shot. If the prosecution did not know the time of death, how did Hernandez, unless he was […]
