Emporia Reckless Driving 97 mph on I95 Reduced
Riley & Wells 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 РІР‚Сљopen upРІР‚Сњ the Mustang and РІР‚Сљpunched itРІР‚Сњ 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.
