Emporia VA Reckless Driving 100 mph NOT GUILTY
Driving 100 mph is taken very seriously by Emporia VA judges. In this case, our client was a professional driver who at the wrong moment with an open road decided to “open up” his 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 100 mph. Our lawyers were eventually able to present various arguments based on the evidence in the case to convince the Judge to enter an order that found our client NOT GUILTY of criminal misdemeanor reckless driving. The case was reduced to defective equipment. Click on the image to the left for actual court disposition.
