Reckless Driving charge reduced in Mecklenburg 82 MPH in a 70 MPH zone
Nick Wright represented a client charged with Reckless Driving for speeding 82 MPH in a 70 MPH zone in Mecklenburg County, Va. The client was a resident of North Carolina and would have difficulty appearing in court. On the date of the trial, Mr. Wright was able to get the client’s appearance at trial waved and convinced the judge to reduce the Reckless Driving Class 1 Misdemeanor charge to Defective Equipment, a no-points, non-moving violation. This allowed the client to avoid the 6-points and Class 1 misdemeanor associated with a Reckless Driving conviction. The client only needed to pay a fine and court costs.
