The law firm Weiland Upton, PLLC, was able to obtain a great result for a client in Hanover County last week. Our client received a Hanover Reckless Driving ticket for traveling 95 mph in a 70 mph zone.
In Hanover County this speed subjects you to an active jail sentence, driver’s license suspension and a high fine. The Virginia State Trooper alleged that our client was traveling at this rate of speed in the middle of the afternoon among heavy holiday traffic.
Since the client followed our advice and provided us with all the information requested, we were able to make a very strong appeal to the judge. As a result, the judge not only refused to put our client in jail or suspend his driver’s license, he actually reduced the charge down from Reckless Driving to a minor traffic offense called Improper Driving and gave him a fine only.
If you or anyone you know finds themselves charged with a serious traffic offense in Virginia such as Reckless Driving or Driving Under the Influence, feel free to contact the attorneys at Weiland Upton, PLLC, (804) 355-8037.
