Reckless Driving charge reduced in Mecklenburg County VA 88 MPH in a 70 MPH zone
Samantha Upton represented a client charged with Reckless Driving for speeding 88
MPH in a 70 MPH zone in Mecklenburg County, Va. The client had a clean driving record but was a resident of Illinois and would have a difficult time appearing in court. Ms. Upton was able to get the client’s appearance at trial waived and convinced the judge to reduce the Reckless Driving charge to a lesser infraction of Speeding 78 MPH in a 70 MPH zone following the client’s completion of defensive driving class.
This 3-point moving violation allowed the client to avoid the 6-point Class 1 misdemeanor associated with a Reckless Driving charge (along with a license suspension). The client only needed to complete the course, pay a fine and court costs.
