Before we start, let me first state that I already know how stupid I am for driving while my license is suspended, and that I had less than a month left on my 6 month suspension.
So my license was suspended in the first place for 6 months because of moving violations (3 speeding tickets, all seperate), and I am still on my provisional. I am 21 years old, and have not yet been able to go a year and a half without a citation.
So I get pulled over 2 nights ago for having a head light out that I was unaware of. I actually pulled into the 7-11 and parked and the police officer kind of pulled in next to me at an angle. He asked me for my license and all, then they put me into handcuffs after checking and finding out it was suspended. They told me that I could have been arrested right there but instead they decided to give me two citations for driving on a suspended license.
1) Driving while on a suspended license
2) Driving while on a suspended license under (17-106,26-204,26-206,27-103)
I then had to leave my car there and get it the next day, I ended up getting a cab home instead of being arrested and taken down to the station. I have to go to a preliminary inquiry by Wednesday. I'm wondering if I should bring a lawyer to the preliminary or is that just a waste of money? What am I looking at here? I've heard of people getting a weekend in jail over something stupid like this.. I've also been told many many fines.. and revoketion of license which is what I'm afraid of.
