Since you have been charged with a criminal offense of having an unlicensed driver drive your vehicle as in the matter you are writing about, I highly recommend that you consult with a criminal defense attorney to represent you.

The charge against you appears to be a misdemeanor where if you are convicted of it, there is a good chance that you will be fined, be sentenced to jail (possibly) and worse yet, have a criminal record for the rest of your life. I suggest you get a lawyer for this matter.

Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
