Reckless Driving charge reduced in Henrico County Va 55 MPH in a 35 MPH zone.
John Weiland represented a client charged with Reckless Driving for speeding 55 MPH in a 35 MPH zone in Henrico County, Va. The client had received another Reckless Driving charge within the last 4 years and had a DUI on his record. On the date of the trial, Mr. Weiland appeared on the client’s behalf and was able to convince the judge to reduce the Reckless Driving Class 1 Misdemeanor to a minor traffic infraction of Speeding 15-19 MPH over the posted speed limited.
This 4-point moving violation will only stay on the client’s driving record for five years – allowing the client to avoid the 6-point violation on his record for 11 years and a class 1 misdemeanor conviction that comes with a Reckless Driving charge. The client only needed to pay a small fine and court costs.
