Holding: 
Vacated and remanded.
In a trial for violation of Section 6-303 of Vehicle Code, for Class 4 felony of driving while license suspended or revoked, allows court to determine whether Defendant misled authorities into reinstating his driving privileges by purposefully providing incorrect information or concealing information. Court improperly declared that Section 6-303 was unconstitutional, as it was not necessary to reach question of constitutionality of statute to decide question of case. (KILBRIDE, FREEMAN, THOMAS, GARMAN, BURKE, and THEIS, concurring.)
