Ask an Attorney: MVA Expungement Part I

 

The judge found me not guilty of drinking and driving. How can the MVA still take my license?

You probably either refused to take the breath or blood test or your test result was .08 or greater. The MVA and the Court are separate agencies that have difference interests.One hearing does not relate to the other. So yes, the MVA can suspend your license even if you were found not guilty or received a PBJ in court. But, there are certain rules that must be followed before the MVA can take your license. You can request a hearing to challenge the suspension or have an ignition interlock installed, but you need to know which is better for you. Neither of these options are automatic and must be requested within a short time period after you are charged. Do not delay. Get help immediately if you find yourself in this predicament. One of our Annapolis attorneys can guide you through this process.
