Suspended Driving / Traffic Offenses

West Virginia Driving Offenses Attorney and driving while suspended

There are two types of driving when it comes to suspended charges in West Virginia, regular driving when suspended “(a)” offense, and the more serious “(b)” offense when driving when suspended (DUI related).

The “(a)” offense in the West Virginia state is a crime carrying a fine amount between $100 and $500. You need to know that facing a conviction for a third offense or more may lead to jail time of 30 and 90 days.

Driving under DUI suspension – Penalties

When driving while suspended, you may have to face severe penalties for charges related to DUI. In West Virginia, if you face conviction, a jail sentence of about 30 days to about 6 months is mandatory along with a fine amount of $100 to $500. For a second offense, the sentence may be of 6 months to about a year during which you have to serve in jail and give a fine of $1000 to $3000. For a third or subsequent offense, jail time in the state’s correctional facility is mandatory for one to three years and it may attract a fine of $3000 to $5000.
