Dominic O. Fariello has many years of trial experience and in-depth knowledge of our criminal justice system. He brings years of trial experience, dedicated client focus and a track record of success in driving offense cases to your side.
Our lawyers are highly familiar with sentencing guidelines, effective defense strategies and the harsh punishments you face – a lengthy jail term, heavy fines, a criminal record, damage to your reputation and employment prospects, separation from your loved ones and strict probation conditions upon your release.
Driving while a license is suspended is a criminal traffic offense in our state. Entering a plea to such a serious charge can potentially make you a habitual traffic offender (HTO). This outcome would result in suspension of your Florida driving privileges for five years. If you stand accused of this, the Law Offices of Dominic O. Fariello, P.A., can use your free initial consultation to review your driving record and discuss the details of what you are facing.
Contact us immediately by phone or email if you have been arrested for a serious driving offense.
Suspects who have pleaded guilty to multiple traffic violations or criminal driving offenses may be considered habitual traffic offenders. In Florida, a habitual traffic offender is any person whose record shows that he or she has collected a certain number of offenses within five years.
Three convictions for offenses such as drunk driving, involuntary or voluntary manslaughter, or driving a motor vehicle while a license is suspended or revoked within five years will be subject to HTO status. Also, anyone who receives 15 convictions for certain moving violations within a five-year period can be considered an HTO.
HTO status can mean substantial fines and incarceration in addition to the long-term loss of your driver’s license. If you are arrested for driving as a habitual offender, you could face felony charges.
Our skilled defense lawyers arm you with the facts and legal options you should be aware of if you are to obtain a valid Florida driver’s license. We work hard on both fronts, the criminal case as well as administrative matters, to give you the best chance for positive results.
