My question involves a driver's license issued by the State of: Florida
I knowingly drove with my license suspended for the first time; since then I have had it reinstated and I'm approaching my court date in several weeks.
Doing some research, this is my first offense and I'm not a habitual offender. If I'm reading correctly over the statutes I believe that I fall under s. 775.083 and will be charged with a second degree misdemeanor, I can only be fined no more than $500 plus court costs.
Is this correct, am I over looking something?
Do I need representation or can I just go in and face this alone without a lawyer and not exceed the fines above?
Any recommendations on getting a reduced fine?
Thanks in advance.
