A: You'll need to consult with a local attorney before doing anything. Although you were the one hit, you are accountable for driving with a license suspended (a misdemeanor). The general advice for any criminal proceeding is to plea not guilty unless directed otherwise through the advice of counsel. A key factor that will determine the outcome here is how many times you've been caught driving without a license.
