Some misdemeanors can be serious and have negative and long lasting effects on your record, including the loss of your driving privileges. (Some misdemeanors such as possession of less than an oz of marijuana or DUI actually require some type of license suspension.)
If you are charged with a misdemeanor, do not make the mistake of believing it is a minor matter. You need to speak with an attorney experienced in this area in order to find out your rights and what you are facing. Additionally, it may be necessary for you to file certain documents (such as a license suspension hearing request in a DUI case) to protect your driver’s license privileges.
