My question involves a driver's license issued by the State of: Michigan
I was recently ticketed for driving with an expired license,
which I totally forgot about its renewing date had passed for about 10 months. I was told that it is a dismeanor to drive with an expired license and the judge can send me to jail for 90 days because of that. Although it is not likely that the jail time will be sentenced, it will leave me a dismeanor charge on my record if I admit gailty. So, my question is how likely I can avoid the dismeanor record? Do I generally need a lawer in this case?
