Reckless Driving Ticket Reduced to Speeding in Loudoun County

October 2020

Client was driving home and was being tailgated by another driver.  In order to get away from this individual the client sped up and was ultimately stopped by a Loudoun County Sheriff for driving 56mph in a 35mph zone.  Due to client's somewhat extensive driving record and an alleged speed of 21mph over the speed limit the client was charged with reckless driving under Virginia Code § 46.2-862.  The client completed all pre-court tasks we recommended, including a speedometer calibration and reckless driving course.  The circumstances surrounding the speed were explained in detail to the prosecutor at court as well as the mitigation provided by the client.  The prosecutor ultimately agreed to reduce the reckless driving charge to simple speeding at 9-over at 44/35 with a fine under Virginia Code § 46.2-878.  This is a great result because, even with the client's prior convictions on the driving history, the client avoided a misdemeanor conviction and ended up with a low-level speeding infraction.  It is important to note that, in many cases, while the Judge and prosecutor are focused on an individual's prior record, it is important to point out the facts in the case at hand.
