Henrico Reckless Driving 96 Mph Reduced To Minor Speeding Infraction
John Weiland of the traffic defense law firm of Weiland Upton recently handled a Reckless Driving Class 1 Misdemeanor in Henrico County General District Court where the driver was charged with operating his vehicle at 96 mph in a 65 mph zone.
In Henrico, VA this is a very serious charge that almost always requires an active jail sentence and license suspension.
Mr. Weiland sculpted a strong defense for his client, a CDL-holding truck driver from out of state, and ultimately succeeded in having the serious charge reduced to a standard speeding violation.
As a Commercial Driver, the client’s livelihood relies upon his ability to drive and avoiding a criminal misdemeanor on his driving record was of the utmost importance to him. Since the 96 mph misdemeanor was reduced to a normal speeding ticket, jail and license suspension were not part of the Judge’s sentence and the client was responsible for a fine only.
