On July 21st, 2011, Miller-Cerasuolo represented a client in the Hopewell General District Court in Hopewell, VA. The client, a Maryland resident, was driving North on I-95 when she was pulled over in Hopewell County for Speeding 90 mph in a 70 mph zone. The Officer did not charge her with a minor Speeding Infraction. Since she was driving over 80 mph, the Officer charged her with Reckless Driving by Speed- a Class 1 Misdemeanor, a Criminal Offense, Virginia Code Section: A.46.2-862. A Reckless Driving conviction carries six demerit points and greatly affects the driver’s insurance, and at such high speeds, the offense is punishable by fines up to $2,500, jail time and license suspension. The client retained our services after a no-obligation phone consultation and did not have to attend Court as our Attorney could appear on her behalf. In Court, the Attorney was able to negotiate a plea bargain with the Judge, avoiding license suspension, high fines and jail time. The Attorney got the Reckless Driving charge reduced from a Criminal Misdemeanor to a minor Infraction.
