Reckless Driving charge reduced in Hopewell 85 MPH in a 70 MPH zone
John Weiland represented a client charged with Reckless Driving for speeding 85 MPH in a 70 MPH zone in Hopewell County, Va. The client was a resident of Maryland and would have a difficult time appearing in court. On the trial date, Mr. Weiland 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 non-moving, no-points violation.
This reduction allowed the client to avoid the 6-points in Virginia and Class 1 Misdemeanor conviction associated with a Reckless Driving charge. The client only needed to pay a small fine and court costs.
