Our Emporia VA traffic attorneys represented a client from Vienna VA for reckless driving speeding 97 mph on Interstate 95 in Emporia VA. Our client was a 59 year old DC professional driving a shiny brand new Ford Mustang around daybreak on his way to a long overdue vacation to Florida. At about the worst time possible, our client decided to “open up” the Mustang and “punched it” for a few seconds. Unfortunately, a Police Officer was operating stationary RADAR at the exact same location and exact same time as our client and gathered evidence of speeds of 97 miles per hour. At trial, the Police Officer was present in court and his evidence was sufficient, but Riley & Wells Attorneys had arguments prepared in advance that were going to ideally convince the Judge not to find our client guilty of a misdemeanor criminal offense for a momentary lapse of bad judgment. The Court agreed with our arguments and found our client not guilty of reckless driving and reduced the case to the traffic infraction of speeding only imposing a minor fine.
Emporia Reckless Speeding REDUCED to Defective Speedometer
Our Emporia VA traffic lawyers represented a client from Ashburn VA who was pulled over on Interstate 95 in Emporia VA. The Emporia Police alleged that our client was traveling in excess of 80 mph in violation of Va. Code 46.2-862. Our client was concerned and did not want to be convicted of this reckless driving speeding allegation. We appeared before the Court on the clients behalf and successfully argued to have the allegation significantly dropped down to what the law categorizes as Defective Speedometer pursuant to Va. Code 46.2-1080. This disposition is a no points non-moving traffic infraction that protected the clients driving record and automobile insurance policy, in addition to avoiding a misdemeanor reckless driving conviction for nothing more than speeding.
Driving in Violation of DUI Restricted Driver’s License
Our Emporia VA traffic attorneys represented a client who was alleged to have been driving in violation of a DUI related restricted driver’s license pursuant to Va. Code 18.2-272. The courts and the DMV take allegations like this very seriously. A conviction will typically lead to a jail sentence and loss of driving privileges for 12 months. In this case, Riley & Wells attorneys were able to find a weakness in the prosecution’s case and were also able to present favorable mitigating evidence on behalf of the client to convince the Judge to significantly reduce the allegation without a jail sentence, without loss of driving privileges and with only a minor fine being imposed. The client was relieved to avoid a jail sentence, to avoid any further loss of driving privileges, and to have the allegation drastically reduced.
