Reckless Driving charge reduced in Henrico 71 MPH in a 45 MPH zone
Samantha Upton represented a client charged with Reckless Driving for speeding 71 MPH in a 45 MPH zone in Henrico County, Va. The client already had multiple points on her driving record for a previous Speeding and Reckless Driving infractions.
After advising her to complete a Defensive/Aggressive Driving School program, Ms. Upton was able to appear on the client’s behalf and convinced the judge to reduce the Reckless Driving Class 1 Misdemeanor to a lesser traffic infraction of Speeding 10-14 MPH over the posted speed limit.
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.
