How do I know if I will be charged with a DUI or not?

Got pulled over for a suspended license, how do I avoid jail time?
I got pulled over for expired tabs. I have a suspended license. I didn't get arrested. I got a Summons To Court which I must appear for. In a moment of panic I told the officer I got my license back a few months ago and in reality I did not. My license is suspended for a DUI from a few years ago. I will pay fines and do whatever I need to just to avoid going to jail for even a day. It was a stupid move on my part to get behind the wheel. It's my first time getting pulled over with a suspended license. What am I to expect come time to go in front of the judge? Any advice will help! Thanks!
All you can do is hire an attorney to negotiate your case or ask for a public defender.

From the reading I've done I think I'm ok driving on private property but moving equipment on public roads is unclear.
It would depend if you need a license to drive this equipment in the first place, asker. Without knowing what you're...
