Habitual Traffic Offender (HTO) in Bellevue

traffic violationThe ramifications of being categorized as a habitual traffic offender will severely impact your life for years. The initial suspension is 4 years and can go to 7 years (or even longer if there are violations).  If there is a possibility that you could be at risk of being classified as a habitual traffic offender (HTO), then it is absolutely vital that you contact an attorney before it is too late.  It is important that you fight every possible strike rather than only fighting the final strike

An HTO classification can come by two different ways. The most common is by getting three strikes within a five-year period. Each strike is from a conviction for a serious driving crime, such as a DUI, physical control, Hit & Run Attended, reckless driving, and driving while license suspended 2°.

The other way to be classified as a HTO is from having 20 moving violations on your record from the past five years. A moving violation includes both criminal offense such as a DUI and reckless driving, along with infractions, such as speeding and following too closely. Often, you will get a suspension due to too many violations before getting to the point of being classified as HTO. Obviously, it is in your best interest to contact a Bellevue attorney before even the first suspension is close.

Mr. Newcombe is an amazing lawyer. My DUI case seemed hopeless. But, he was relentless and just kept fighting and fighting. Right when all hope had seemed lost, we brainstormed and came to a conclusion that helped my case tremendously! I couldn't be happier with choosing Jason as my attorney.
