Charged With Vehicle Code 14601.2 (Driving After a DUI Suspension?)

What is the Charge of Vehicle Code 14601.2?

California Vehicle Code 14601.2 is a California Traffic Misdemeanor alleging that a person drove when their license had been suspended because of a DUI.  In order to prove this offense the prosecution must show the following elements.

  1. The defendant was driving
  2. At the time he/she was driving his or her license had been suspended
  3. The license suspension was because of a DUI arrest or conviction.

Consequences of CVC 14601.2

A CVC 14601.2 Charge carries serious consequences. These include

  • Jail (Mandatory 10 days)

  • Public Work Service
  • A permanent criminal record.

We can Help!

If you have been charged with engaging in a CVC 14601.2, we can help.  We have successfully defended hundreds of these very serious misdemeanors.  We have the knowledge and skill to make a significant difference in the outcome of your case.

Knowledge

In a 14601.2 case, the most contested issue is knowledge.  If you did not know that your license was suspended when you were pulled over, than you are not guilty of the offense.  The burden is on the prosecution to prove this element.  If you get pulled over, do not make any incrimining statements indicating that you knew of the license suspension.

DL-310

The DL-310 is an extremely important document in a 14601.2 case.  The DL-310 is a form from the DMV that a police officer personally serves on a person who’s license is suspended.  It’s used by the prosecution to prove that the person had knowledge of the suspension.  If that document had not been served at the time of the arrest or ticket, then the prosecution may have a giant hole in their case.

Plea Bargaining

Often times a traffic misdemeanor can be favorably resolved with some creative plea bargaining.  Plea bargaining is where the defendant pleads to lesser charges to avoid the penalties of the more severe charges.  In a 14601.2 case a common plea bargain is where the prosecution allows the defendant to plead to an infraction Vehicle Code 12500(a) – Unlicensed Driver.  The defendant pays a small fine but avoids DMV points and a criminal record.  Plea bargaining doesn’t happen automatically.  It requires a skilled negotiator and advocate to convince the prosecution to reduce the charges.

Misdemeanor Cases

Successfully defending a misdemeanor case may include the following procedures:

  • Court Appearances
  • DMV “Admin Per Se” Hearing
  • DMV License Status Hearing
  • Motion Hearings on discovery and evidence admissibility/suppression
  • Prosecutor Negotiation
  • Judge or Jury Trial
  • Plea Bargaining
  • Sentencing

Some of the strategies we employ may include the following:

  • Discovery Sanctions
  • Subpoenaing Documents
  • Trial Continuances
  • Pitchess Motions
  • Witness 402 Hearings
  • and others…

  • 1 star review  Keep shopping, this "service" will not help u save one single dollar. U will lose time, energy, & $ with these guys. I provided dash cam footage on a special Zip drive and he didn't even use it. I could've asked the officer that wrote my ticket to dismiss it and asked my judge for leniency/a reduction, without paying $149. I still owe the full fine $401. I should've just set the 149 dollars that Scott charged me on fire. Even after years of law school, my representation put in as little effort as humanly possible. Waste of so much time, energy, & money.
