Sussex County VA Suspended Driver’s License DISMISSED
Our Sussex County Traffic Attorneys represented a client who was charged with driving on a suspended driver’s license in violation of Va. Code 46.2-301. Our client had no idea that his driving privileges were suspended. He was not from the area and was not in a position to return for a trial. We prepared and argued the case in such a manner that the client’s return was not necessary. We argued to the Judge that our client lacked the necessary intent to violate the law as alleged. The Judge agreed with our arguments and dismissed the client’s case. We achieved the best possible outcome and also made the process as easy as possible because the client did not have to return to Sussex County for trial.
Sussex VA Fail to Move Over/Yield Emergency Vehicle DISMISSED
Our Sussex County traffic lawyers represented a client who was charged with failing to yield to an emergency vehicle, more popularly known as the “Move Over Law” in violation of Va. Code 46.2-921.1 for simply failing to make a lane change while travelling on the Interstate. First, our client had no idea that such a law existed, and second, he did not think he was in violation. We agreed. The law does not require a lane change if the driver exercises caution in the appropriate manner. We pled our client not guilty and made the necessary arguments. The Judge agreed with our position and dismissed the case.
Sussex Reckless Driving Speeding 93/70 mph REDUCED
Our Sussex VA traffic attorneys represented a client from Maryland who was pulled over on Interstate 95 by a Virginia State Trooper. Our client was especially concerned about walking away from this event with a permanent misdemeanor criminal conviction as she serves in the military and possesses high levels of clearance. Like many with a government security clearance, a misdemeanor conviction can be devastating to the clearance and perhaps an otherwise promising career. We had various arguments ready to persuade the Court why it should not find our client guilty of a misdemeanor for speeding. The Judge agreed and reduced the case out of the misdemeanor category down to the lesser infraction of speeding only. No misdemeanor conviction.
