Defending Against Operating Motor Vehicle With Registration Suspended
The criminal defense attorneys at Simons Law Office routinely and successfully represent people charged with operating a motor vehicle with a suspended registration.
The prosecution bears the burden of showing that your registration was revoked or suspended, that you were driving, and that you knew that your registration was revoked or suspended. Sometimes people don’t realize that a lapse due to a late payment, or because of a notice lost in the mail, that their registration was suspended. Innocent mistakes can cause good people to end up in criminal court.
