Driving Privileges Virginia Habitual Offender Lawyers Bath County
Stone v. Commonwealth
Petitioner sought to have his driving privileges restored pursuant to Va. Code Ann. §§ 46.2-361(B)-(C) after having been declared a habitual offender.
- Whether the defendant’s Driving Privileges have to be restored after having been declared a Habitual Offender?
Petitioner sought restoration of his driving privileges pursuant to Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-361(B), after being declared to be a habitual offender. Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-361(C) specified that a habitual offender could only have driving privileges restored if the suspensions were based entirely on his failure to pay fines and costs, failure to furnish proof of financial responsibility, or failure to satisfy a judgment. The record showed that petitioner was found to be a habitual offender after several convictions for driving with a suspended or revoked license. The court, therefore, found that petitioner was ineligible for restoration under Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-361(C) and denied his petition. The court denied petitioner’s request to have his driving privileges restored. The court found that petitioner did not meet the requirements for restoration of his driving privileges under Virginia law.
