Jail Time Possible For Driving On Suspended License Under New Law

(Springfield, IL) -- The General Assembly has approved a bill that would greatly stiffen the penalties against people caught driving on a suspended license. Under the measure, the offense would no longer be a misdemeanor but a Class Four felony. That could spell up to three years in the pokey and the potential for a 25-thousand-dollar fine. Officials want to make sure folks don’t even want to take the risk of getting pulled over or getting into a wreck without a valid license. If the governor signs the bill, the law would take effect when the calendar flips to 2014.
