Massachusetts Motor Vehicle Attorney
Boston Operating to Endanger Lawyer
The charge of Operating to Endanger (also known as Negligent Operating or Reckless Operation of a Motor Vehicle), can arise in various contexts. You may have been involved in an accident, or observed by a police officer to have been driving in an erratic manner. In any event, a conviction for this charge carries up to 2 years in jail and a mandatory 60 day to 1 year license loss. It may also have collateral consequences with the RMV; many people are also issued an "immediate threat" notice along with this criminal charge, which leads to an INDEFINITE suspension of the person's license when the RMV has reason to believe that the person is a threat to the public's safety. Depending on your driving history, a negligent operation charge may also have additional license loss consequences for cumulative violations, and a conviction will certainly jack up your insurance rates. If you've been charged with this crime, ut is important to discuss your specific circumstances and options with a criminal defense attorney before you are arraigned in court.
