Out of State Reckless Driving charge reduced in Mecklenburg 85 MPH in a 70 MPH zone
Nick Wright represented a client charged with Reckless Driving for speeding 85 MPH in a 70 MPH zone in Mecklenburg County, Va. The client was a resident of North Carolina and did not want to appear in court if possible. On the trial date, Mr. Wright was not only able to get the client’s appearance at trial waived but convinced the judge to reduce the Reckless Driving charge to Defective Equipment, a no-points, non-moving violation.
This reduction allowed the client to avoid any license suspension, license points, insurance points, and the Class 1 Misdemeanor criminal conviction typically associated with the Reckless Driving charge. The client only needed to complete a Defensive Driving class and pay a small fine and court costs.
