Greensville, VA Reckless Driving 98 mph in a 70 reduced with a Possession of Marijuana charge dismissed
Recently I represented a client charged with reckless driving in Greensville, Virginia and marijuana possession. The Greensville, VA reckless driving charge was for driving 98 mph in a 70 and the driving record was not great either. Many courts and judges would put someone in jail for going 98 mph, especially when charged with marijuana possession.
My client and I discussed the case at length. I developed a plan to represent my client for the reckless driving charge in Greensville, VA and the marijuana possession charge. As a Greensville, Virginia reckless driving lawyer I have worked with the prosecutors and I know the prosecutors and the officers and the judges very well. That knowledge allows me to properly advise my clients to get the best outcomes possible. I met with the prosecutor in Greensville, VA more than once to discuss the Greensville, Virginia marijuana possession case. Because the charge of reckless driving by speed in Greensville, Virginia is a Greensville traffic matter the prosecutor does not get involved. The prosecutor does get involved on the Greensville, VA possession of marijuana charge. I was able to present the case in the best light possible and got the judge to completely dismiss the marijuana charge and reduce the Greensville, Virginia reckless driving by speed charge of 98 mph to a simple traffic infraction. Once it was reduced the misdemeanor went away as did the reckless.
This case took a lot of work on my part and on my client’s part, but ultimately my client avoided a misdemeanor. As a college student my client did not want to begin a career with a criminal record for reckless driving in Greensville, VA or for marijuana possession. With careful preparation and presenting the case in the best manner possible I convinced the judge to dismiss the marijuana charge and reduce the Greensville, VA reckless driving charge so it is not a misdemeanor and not a criminal offense. Reckless driving convictions are permanent in that they stay on your criminal record forever and cannot be expunged.
In the end, my client was very pleased with the results.
