A person who commits a criminal traffic violation is one who commits a criminal offense while operating a vehicle. These are much different than a “normal” civil traffic violation, such as a speeding ticket. Criminal traffic violations include offenses such as:
-Driving with a suspended license
-Hit and Run
A large amount of criminal traffic offenses are misdemeanors, but it is possible to be charged with a felony. Facing these charges by yourself can be difficult and the consequences can be very traumatic.
An experienced criminal defense attorney will be the best thing to have on your side during this difficult time. They will possess the skills and reason necessary to help guide you through each part of your case.
One of the ways an attorney can do this is to show that the driver was unaware they were doing anything illegal. This is often the case with driving with a suspended license. These crimes also require solid proof to properly convict a person and officers can lack this.
An experienced attorney will know the proper route to take with your criminal traffic case. If you or someone you know has been charged with a criminal traffic offense, call the Law Office of John R. Vitola to get experience on your side.
