A Collegiate Athlete was charged with Reckless Driving, a six point Class 1 Misdemeanor, criminal offense, for traveling 24mph over the speed limit: 84 mph in a 60 mph zone in Greensville in Emporia County, Virginia.
With this type of charge, the client was facing the high probability of jail time, license suspension and fines up to $2,500. Also, at this high speed, Judges typically are less receptive to negotiation.
The client retained our firm after a free no obligation phone consultation and disclosed that he simply could not afford for this offense to affect his future. In the Emporia County General District Court, our Attorney was able to negotiate with the Judge and was able to avoid jail time and suspensions completely. The charge was reduced to a lesser moving violation that carries fewer points and the client owed minimal fines and costs.
