Frederick County VA Reckless Driving DISMISSED
Our Frederick County VA reckless driving lawyer defended a client accused of reckless driving for too driving fast. During the trial, we developed defenses to the particular RADAR device used to calculate the speed evidence. A plea of not guilty was entered and the trial commenced. We were able to effectively cross examine the deputy sheriff who operated the RADAR in this case and made the reckless driving allegation. We proved the fact that the RADAR used in this particular case was not tested for accuracy with properly calibrated tuning forks, which is required by Va. Code 46.2-882. The Court granted our motion to dismiss the case.
