Reckless Driving Charge Reduced to Non-Moving
John Weiland represented a client charged with Reckless Driving for driving 82 mph in a 70 mph zone in Mecklenburg. The client was a resident of North Carolina and would have had a difficult time appearing in court.
Mr. Weiland was able to waive the client’s appearance at trial, and had the charge reduced to a Defective Equipment charge. This is a no-points, non-moving violation. This 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 small fine and court costs.
