William Tilghman was sentenced to a three year jail sentence for causing a fatality in New Jersey while driving with a suspended license.  Superior Court Judge James M. Blaney's expressed his outrage during the sentencing stating that this tragedy could have been avoided if Mr. Tilghman obeyed the law and didn't operate a motor vehicle.

Each year, hundreds of motorist around the country operate a motor vehicle while their privilege to drive is suspended.  

In New York, taking such action is serious and the offender can be facing either felony or misdemeanor charges.  The vast majority of people charged with this crime are charged under NYS Vehicle Traffic Law (VTL) 511.1 Aggravated Unlicensed Operation of a Motor Vehicle 3rd Degree.

At The Villanueva Law Firm we have helped many motorists resolve their underlying suspensions and avoid a permanent criminal conviction.
