Reckless Driving charge reduced in Emporia 80 MPH in a 55 MPH zone
Nick Wright represented a client charged with Reckless Driving for speeding 80 MPH in a 55 MPH zone in Emporia County, Va. The out of state client had two previous traffic infractions on his record and would have difficulty appearing in court.
On the date of the trial, Mr. Wright was able to waive the client’s appearance at trial and convinced the judge to reduce the Reckless Driving Class 1 Misdemeanor charge to Defective Equipment. This is a no-points, non-moving violation. This allowed the client to avoid the 6-points and class 1 misdemeanor associated with a Reckless Driving charge. The client only needed to pay a small fine and court costs.
