Fighting back against Racial Profiling

Anthony Hernandez was arrested and spent a month in custody because of racial profiling and presumptions by the arresting officer. It might have been far worse had it not been for the persistence of his defense attorney, who kept demanding that prosecutors turn over body camera footage of the incident from the arresting officer. Once the officer turned it over to the prosecutor’s office, almost immediately the Sacramento DA dropped the charges. The Vanguard speaks to Attorney Jennifer Mouzis about the arrest and the illegal activities of the Sacramento Police.

Suspended License

Suspended License Defense Attorney in Sacramento, CA

In California, your license can be suspended when convicted of a variety of crimes, including DUI.

Other offenses which may result in having your license suspended include:

  • Failure to appear in court (this applies to all charges including felonies, misdemeanors and minor infractions)
  • Failure to fulfill court ordered obligations, including community service or paying fines
  • Being issued too many traffic tickets within a certain period of time

If your license has been suspended for any reason, it is imperative that you do the following:

  • Stop driving immediately. Ask a friend or relative to take you where you need to go. If you are caught driving on a suspended license, the consequences are severe and may include significant fines and/or jail time.
  • Consult with a criminal defense lawyer immediately. You have a ten day window from the time you are notified that your license has been suspended to request a hearing at the DMV. If you miss that opportunity, you won’t be able to do much about the suspension until the time period for the suspension passes.

Having your license suspended and the privilege to drive revoked – even for a short period of time – can have an exceptionally negative impact on your life. You’ll have difficulty getting:

  • to and from your job
  • to doctor’s appointments
  • out to grocery shop

Having a skilled California defense lawyer assist you in requesting a hearing in a timely fashion and representing you in court is often enough to have the charges dropped and get your license reinstated.

Don’t let a suspended license make life more difficult for you.

What Is The Difference Between A Misdemeanor And A Felony?

There are key differences between a misdemeanor and a felony in the judicial system. A misdemeanor is a minor criminal offense, whereas a felony is a much more serious, usually violent, criminal offense. Examples of felony violations include:felony violations
  • murder
  • possession of dangerous drugs for sale
  • robberyrape
Examples of misdemeanor violations are:
  • petty theft
  • driving on a suspended license and drunk driving
The essential difference is the severity of punishment. A felony conviction can lead you in state prison, but a misdemeanor will only have you do time in the local or country jail. A felony can involve a fine up to $10,000 and a sentence of up to life in prison or even the death sentence for special circumstance murder. A misdemeanor is generally punishable by a $1,000 fine and a maximum of one year in count jail. In addition to the longer punishment, a person convicted of a felony: loses the right to vote, cannot possess firearms, cannot obtain certain licenses, such as a hunting or a fishing license and is also required to disclose a conviction when applying for jobs.
