Traffic crimes can range between minor and severe. The most minor offenses consist of parking citations and “fix it” tickets, while the most serious cases include accidents where someone was injured or killed.
Infractions make up most of the traffic offenses punishable in California and they are not violations of state criminal law. These types of violations are punishable by fines, traffic school, and/or points on your driving record. Accumulating four points in 12 months means the DMV has the right to suspend your driver’s license.
By contrast, more serious traffic offenses are considered criminal offenses, which can carry imprisonment, fines, victim restitution, driver’s license revocation, and drug or alcohol treatment. There are two types of criminal offenses: misdemeanors and felonies. Although felonies are more serious than misdemeanors, both are associated with harsh criminal penalties, if convicted.
Our firm handles the following types of traffic offenses in Orange County:
Although many traffic offenses are considered infractions that result in a fine and points on your record, there are others that are considered misdemeanor or even felonies. A conviction for a serious traffic offense can lead to a lengthy jail or prison sentence, fines worth thousands of dollars, and suspension or revocation of your driver’s license. Due to the severe nature of many traffic offenses, having the right criminal defense attorney on your side can significantly benefit your case.
