Richmond Va Reckless Driving Case Ends With Great Results

Last week,  the law firm Weiland Upton, PLLC, obtained a fantastic result for a client facing a serious Reckless Driving ticket in Richmond, Virginia.

Our client was charged with going 57 mph in a 25 mph zone.  Since the client was going in excess of double the speed limit in the fan district of Richmond, she was looking at some serious potential consequences.  While the client’s record was clean over the past several years, it did reflect a DUI conviction from about seven years ago.

Thanks to the attorny presentation to the court, the client avoided a jail sentence, high fine and license suspension.  In fact, the attorney was able to convince the judge to completely dismiss the Reckless Driving charge if the client merely pays court costs and completes an aggressive driver education program.

Weiland Upton represented a VCU student recently in Richmond General District Court on a charge of Underage Possession of Alcohol. In this case, the VCU police department responded to a complaint regarding some activity in a university dorm room. When the the police arrived, they immediately noticed the smell of alcohol in the room where several college students were hanging out.

Upon searching the room, which belonged to our client and her roommate, a bottle of liquor was found. Several students, including our client, were all found to be below the legal age in Virginia to consume or possess alcohol and charged with Underage Possession of Alcohol. A potential legal defense was found and used to convince the Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney to drop the charge against our client. As a result of the charge being dropped, our client was not convicted of any crime and faced absolutely no punishment.
