Reckless Driving Speeding 96/70 REDUCED
Excessive high speed on Interstate 95 are often difficult cases to defend. Attorneys who regularly practice in this Court understand that a reckless driving speeding case with speed evidence of 75 miles per hour is typically a different case than a case where the speed evidence is 90+ miles per hour. In this case, the speed evidence was 4 miles per hour less than 100 miles per hour. We prepared our client for the likely evidence the prosecution was going to present and we wanted to present our own evidence as well. At trial, we successfully mitigated the speed evidence with our own other evidence and convinced the Judge to find our client not guilty of misdemeanor reckless driving.
