Reckless Driving charge reduced in Sussex 88 MPH in a 70 MPH zone
John Weiland represented a client charged with Reckless Driving for speeding 88 MPH in a 70 MPH zone in Sussex County, Va. The client was a resident of Maryland and would have difficulty appearing in court. Mr. Weiland was able to waive the client’s appearance at trial and convinced the judge to reduce the Reckless Driving Class 1 Misdemeanor to a lesser traffic infraction of Speeding 79 MPH in 70 MPH zone. This maneuver 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 fine and court costs.
