Caroline County VA Reckless Driving 125 mph REDUCED by the Jury
Most traffic related cases are resolved with a bench or Judge trial; however, every now and then, some cases can only be resolved by a jury trial. Riley & Wells Attorneys-At-Law represented a client in Caroline County Circuit Court with one of those cases. The allegation was that our client was reckless driving speeding 125 mph in a 65 mph zone. The client was originally represented by another firm in the Caroline County District Court and the Judge imposed a significant term of incarceration. The client appealed the verdict to the Circuit Court and subsequently retained our firm for representation. We discovered a significant issue with the accuracy of the state trooper’s RADAR evidence; however, the Commonwealth’s Attorney disagreed. We proceeded with a trial by jury and convinced the jurors that there were significant errors with the trooper’s evidence and the Jury ruled for our client by finding him not guilty of misdemeanor reckless driving. Instead, the jury reduced our client’s case to the minor traffic of improper driving and imposed a $250 fine. Needless to say, our client was ecstatic!
