Driving with No Insurance in Olathe

Criminal Lawyer Serving Johnson County

Being charged with driving with no insurance is not a simple matter. Failure to provide proof of adequate liability insurance when stopped by a law enforcement official is a class B misdemeanor. This can result in penalties including up to six months in jail and fines ranging from $300 to $1000 dollars. Additionally, you will have your license suspended until you have obtained proper insurance, and you will be required to maintain that insurance for one year. If you are facing charges of driving without insurance, it is crucial you contact an Olathe criminal defense lawyer immediately, who may be able to help you avoid the negative ramifications of a no insurance conviction.
