Nick Wright represented a client charged with Reckless Driving for speeding 85 MPH in a 70 MPH zone in Sussex County, Va. The client was a Pennsylvania resident and would have a difficult time appearing in court. Mr. Wright was able to waive the client’s appearance in court and convinced the judge to reduce the Reckless Driving Class 1 Misdemeanor charge to Defective Speedometer, which is a non-moving, no-point 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.
