Chesterfield Aggregated Reckless Driving Reduced
Samantha Upton represented a combat veteran charged with traveling 53 mph above the speed limit in Chesterfield County, Virginia. The case was further aggravated because the officer witnessed the defendant barely avoid a T-bone accident while traveling at that speed. Chesterfield County is known for being extremely tough on defendants in high speed cases.
Ms. Upton worked with the client to develop a tailored mitigation strategy and on the day of Court was able to keep his jail time to only one weekend he could serve without missing work. She was also able to convince the Judge to approve a restricted license so he could continue to drive to and from his job.
