Driving After Revocation Prohibited – HTO
Driving After Revocation Prohibited as a Habitual Traffic Offender (HTO) is a special type of driving under revocation charge. It is a serious charge with enhanced penalties, but also provides that the court may order that any and all jail and/or the fine may be suspended if the driver completes between 40 and 300 hours of community service. Thereafter, if the driver completes the community service, the court will vacate the suspended jail sentence.
Driving After Revocation Prohibited HTO is a Class 1 Misdemeanor, which carries a mandatory minimum jail sentence of thirty (30) days in jail and a $3000.00 fine. The maximum jail sentence is eighteen (18) months and a $5000.00 fine.
All jurisdictions in Colorado treat Diving After Revocation Prohibited as a Habitual Traffic Offender (HTO) as a serious crime. Most jurisdictions ask for a significant jail sentence for drivers who are convicted of this offense. Some jurisdictions will allow community service to be served with a suspended jail sentence, depending upon the facts of the particular case. Sometimes a conviction for the charge and jail time may be avoided all together as a result of the work of an experienced traffic lawyer and the facts of a particular case.
