Q: Hi my names is jose I just got my 4th ticket for no license and my ticket is of 1000$ Will I do jail time?
A: The answer depends on what the reason is for the suspension. If it’s for a DUI then you are looking at jail time otherwise, you could avoid jail. Is there some reason you can’t get a valid drivers license in California? Often times, it’s just because of some fines or fees that were not paid on an old case. Also, a judge can convert the fines to community service if here she wants to. You should ask for that.
A: much more info needed.
was it a suspended license or just not in your possession.
if suspended....why? were you on probation? if so for what?
have you ever had a Calif license? if not why?
are you here illegally?
with proper representation, I suspect you will not do jail time and at the worst home arrest with an ankle bracelet or community service.
