Are you a CDL driver who is being charged with commission of a felony?

December 3, 2018

Are you a CDL driver who is being charged with commission of a felony?Attorney Mike Sherman is a former Pennsylvania State Police Attorney who can make a difference in these cases.

Using a vehicle to commit a felony, is a major offense which means your CDL will be suspended for at least a year. Here are some things to take into account:

    • It doesn’t matter if the offense occurred in your personal vehicle. Using a vehicle to commit a felony will still result in a license suspension if you are convicted.
    • If this is your first major offense, the license suspension is 1 year.


  • If this occurred in a HAZMAT vehicle, your CDL will be suspended for 3 years.
  • If you have a previous major violation, you are facing a lifetime disqualification.
  • If the vehicle was used in the commission of a felony involving a controlled substance, you are facing a lifetime disqualification even it is a first offense.

If your license gets suspended, is your company going to sit around and wait for you or will they go hire someone else? Even after your suspension is over, the major offense stays on your permanent driving history. Do you think companies really want to hire drivers with major offenses on their history?

This is why you need to take these charges very seriously and get professional legal help. Not only are you looking at possible jail time for the felony, you are also looking at completely losing your career as a truck driver. Attorney Mike Sherman has been helping truck drivers for years and has successfully helped many of them reduce their fines, reduce their charges, and keep them on road.
