An Opelousas man is facing mandatory jail time if convicted of driving with a suspended license. 41-year-old Larry Oakley was charged Friday with third offense DWI, careless operation, hit and run and operating a motor vehicle while under suspension. According to State Police, no one was injured in the hit-and-run.
However, State Police did arrest him just one week prior, to once again driving with a suspended license and for speeding.
State law says that if someone is convicted of driving with a suspended license, that was suspended because of a DWI, they face a mandatory jail sentence of 15 days.
