What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Michigan
I was not breaking any laws when the cop pulled me over - he just happened to run my plate and discover that my license was expired due to not paying a driver's responsibility fee. I moved recently and did not change my address - therefore I did not know about the fee or that my license was suspended. This is my first offense for driving under a suspended license and I do not have any drunk driving convictions on my record. However, I do have a felony on my record, a drug charge, that I got of probation for in April 2011. Will they hold this against me in any way?
I know that it's my fault for not changing my address, so I have taken steps to pay the fee and change my address since - I am waiting for my payment to go through - they said they have to wait 10 days until SOS gets it but they should have it by the 19th and I can go in and reinstate my license. My court date is on the 20th. What further steps can I take from here to make it easier on myself? Am I facing any jail time? How much can I expect to pay in fees?What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
