Q: No Insurance, Expired Tags, and License to be in Possession.
I was pulled over, due to having expired tags. My fiancé was the driver (while I was in the passenger seat) and my fiancè did not have their license on them. After the State Trooper asked for my proof of insurance, I was unable to provide that as I am not ensured (I did not notify the State Trooper of this). Now, my fiancé is facing the following charges; 1. No Registration Plates 2. No Registration Receipt 3. Failure of Non-Owner Operator to Maintain Req Ins/Sec, 1st off 4. Failure to Produce Insurance Card 5. Licenses to be in Possession What should I do and what is my fiancée facing? I read that he could possibly go to jail. I need some suggestions and support on this matter. I now have Insurance that has been paid, and I now have tags.
A: I would hire an experienced attorney and your chances of getting a better outcome on the case will be improved. There are many factors including previous driving record etc. I don't think jail is likely but there can be license suspension and fines. Jail typically only comes into play if you have prior no insurance charges.
Timothy Denison agrees with this answer
A: Get insurance and all of the tags corrected and license reinstated and take all the proof with you to court. If you do, he is likely only looking at a fine, costs and probated time.
