Reckless Driving Charge Reduced to Defective Equipment in Prince William County

October 2020

Client was stopped on the Occoquan bridge by a Town of Occoquan Police Officer for driving 75mph in a 40mph zone.  Due to the speed being driven at 35mph over the speed limit, the client was charged with reckless driving under Virginia Code § 46.2-862.  Client was a George Mason University Student, had a good GPA and worked hard, had a good driving record, and took a driver improvement course before court.  We appeared in the Prince William County General District Court (where Town of Occoquan cases are heard) and used these facts to negotiate a reduction of the charge with the Town Attorney to Defective Equipment.  As a result, client was not convicted of a misdemeanor but of a no-point traffic infraction.  Our client was young and nearing entering the workforce upon completing college.  At the alleged speed it is unlikely a Judge would have reduced the charge and we are very happy we were able to have the Town Attorney onboard and achieve the right result in this case.
