Q: My son has a warrant for driving under revocation at the county, can the City of Lawton charge and remand him also.
He was arrested by City of Lawton, charged with driving under revocation, Comanche county has the warrant, and he will probably be charged again there. Since Comanche county deals with DUI, DWI, and major traffic offense after the one time charge of the city, isn't a revoked license a county matter?
A: I'm sorry for your troubles. I understand and I am well aware of this type of situation. First I want to let you know some good news. The law allowing a surcharges to be imposed for those given citations/arrests for DWLI (driving while license invalid) because of failure have insurance or because of a previous DWLI has been repealed. The effective date is September 1, 2019. Any surcharges after that date are waived but people must continue making their monthly payments until that date. The state will not reimburse the surcharges already paid.
If your son was driving with a suspended license in addition to the new charges, he will be slapped with another suspension and his license will not be reinstated until he pays the $100 reinstatement fee to DPS.
