Default Driving on a Suspended lisence

I was recently charged with driving on a suspended license in Illinois. I had a suspended license in Florida that I didn't know about...

I live in Michigan and it IS valid there.

I have been looking online and this looks pretty scary and I'm trying to get everything straightened out. I paid all of my fees in Florida now.

Does anyone know anybody who has been charged with this and what I should expect? I'm pretty nervous here. Online it says 2500 dollars and 360 days in jail. This seems harsh... considering the fact that I didn't know and also that I have a valid license where I live.

You need a lawyer. You need to know why your license was suspended. I do not believe this is a DIY project.

When you have a suspended/ revoked license in any state your drivers license in Illinois is not valid. DWLS is a class A misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in prison. The fine amount is set by the judge. Get a traffic attorney

Time to lawyer up. Taking free internet advice is a great way to land in jail even if you normally wouldn't.
