Traffic Offenses

There are traffic offenses that are a lot more severe than other offenses and these offenses can result in charges such as going to prison. A traffic violation can be seen as a minor incident if nobody was hurt. However, that same accident can easily become a misdemeanor or felony if someone is hurt or even killed. There are also particular traffic offenses that are deemed as sever on their own, such as driving while drunk or driving a vehicle without a driver's license. If you are a person charged with a traffic felony or misdemeanor, it is important that you contact an attorney at Law Offices of Nooney, Roberts, Hewett & Nowicki in Jacksonville, Florida who can help to protect his or her legal rights!

Traffic Misdemeanor

Countless traffic violations are usually categorized as misdemeanors. An example of a traffic misdemeanor would be driving without proper insurance. Since misdemeanors are considered to be less severe crimes, the charges are usually fining and jail for one year or less. However, traffic offense penalties vary by state.

In a majority of states, an individual with a misdemeanor charge can have their rights removed, such as having your voting rights revoked. This is when having an attorney to represent you in your traffic felony or misdemeanor case is crucial, especially when seeking reduction of a penalty.

Traffic Felony

Traffic felonies are one of the most severe offenses in the Criminal Justice System. In many states, they will result to more than one year of imprisonment. Examples of traffic felonies include the following:

  • Felony DUI
  • Vehicular homicide
  • Repeated offenses (Driving with no license)
  • Leaving the scene of auto accident

Someone who is facing a felony and works in particular profession such as teaching or law, may risk losing their job. Felonies may also prohibit an individual to obtain or possess firearms, as well as being in the military. In some states, they abide by a "three strikes" law that has the ability to sentence you a lifetime of imprisonment after the third charge.
