Driving on a revoked license for a dwai that happened 14+yrs ago in Colorado
My husband was convicted of a dwai in 2002, he didn't show up for sentencing. Years later he wanted to get all this figured out, went to courthouse asked how to take care of it and was told the case was too old that he only needed to pay a fine. He paid the fine, two years later needed proof that this case was closed goes to court to ask for proof and is told he needs to see the judge that they don't know why he was allowed to pay the fines as he has receipts. Went back to court as walk in was sentenced paid fines then got notice from DMV that his license was revoked due to this even though it happened more than a decade ago. After his license was revoked for 6mo he was pulled over for the "windows being too dark" as I wasn't feeling well and asked him to drive. I got a drs note as I had to go to the drs the following day due to how ill I was feeling. Will he go to jail or will they take into consideration that this offense happened 14+yrs ago and had no other driving convictions after this... Please help???!
