Reckless Driving charge reduced in Hopewell 92 MPH in a 70 MPH zone.
Samantha Upton represented a client in Hopewell Va charged with Reckless Driving for speeding at an excessive rate of 92 MPH in a 70 MPH zone.
She had received a Speeding ticket on her record within the last year. After advising the client to complete a Driver’s Improvement course and community service, Ms. Upton was not only able to get the client’s appearance at trial waived but convinced the judge to reduce the Reckless Driving Class 1 Misdemeanor to a minor traffic infraction of Improper Driving.
This is a 3-point traffic infraction that only stays on your record for three years. Due to the reduction, the client was able to avoid the 6 points and the class 1 misdemeanor associated with the Reckless Driving charge. The client only needed to pay a fine and court costs.
