Client Avoids Jail Time in High Speed Case in Mecklenburg County Va
Samantha Upton represented a client who was charged with driving 97 mph in a 70 mph zone in Mecklenburg, Va. The client lived in Pennsylvania, and could not make the court date to work obligations. At this speed, the client’s appearance is required in Mecklenburg. The client faced possible jail time and a 6-month license suspension.
Ms. Upton was able to waive the client’s appearance, despite the serious nature of the charge. On the trial date, she was able to convince the judge to not order any jail time or license suspension. The client only needed to pay fines and court costs.
