Ever Wonder What The Difference Is Between Driving While License Suspended, First, Second, And Third Degree? Jonathan Rands, DUI Defense Attorney Explains How The Different Degrees Come About And What They Mean
There is a lot more to the crime of Driving While License Suspended. In fact, there there are 3 levels, or 3 "degrees" of a license suspension / revoked (there is a important difference) and a driver can find themself in the the lowest level (suspended status) and do so very quickly simply for having forgotten to pay a traffic fine regardless of whether it is civil or criminal in nature. Although only one level of Driving While Licesne Revoked (2nd Degree) is related to DUI, Jonathan Rands is "fluent" in the crime and explains how it happens, how the monetary challenges of a driver can create a situation of perpetual motion, that transitions into a scenario described by Jonathan in his blog post as a "DoL Death Spiral" and how that becomes a reality beyond DWLS 3.
