North Carolina resident Reckless Driving charge reduced in Mecklenburg 83 MPH in a 70 MPH zone
Samantha Upton represented a client charged with Reckless Driving for speeding 83 MPH in a 70 MPH zone in Mecklenburg County, Va. The client was a resident of North Carolina and would have a difficult time appearing in court. On the trial date, Ms. Upton was not only able to get the client’s appearance at trial waived but convinced the judge to reduce the Reckless Driving charge to Defective Equipment, a no-points, non-moving violation. This reduction allowed the client to avoid the license points, insurance points, and Class 1 Misdemeanor associated with the Reckless Driving charge. The client only needed to pay a fine and court costs.
