Mecklenburg Va Reckless Driving 95 MPH Charge Reduced
Samantha Upton represented a client charged with Reckless Driving for driving 95 mph in a 70 mph zone through Mecklenburg, Virginia. Many jurisdictions in Virginia consider and will impose an active jail sentence for speeds exceeding 90 mph. The client was a college student with a clean driving record. There was nothing aggravated about the case besides the speed, but the speed alone is an issue.
Ms. Upton was able to negotiate a plea agreement with the prosecutor for the client’s Reckless Driving charge to be REDUCED to a minor traffic infraction upon payment of a $300.00 fine, completion of community service hours, and completion of a driver improvement class.
The client never had to travel from his South Carolina college and Ms. Upton was able to avoid jail, a high fine, a license suspension and even the Class 1 Misdemeanor.
