No one plans on needing a lawyer, but when you are facing a criminal charge as a result of speeding, calling our firm should be the first move you make. Excessive speed, which Virginia traffic law defines as more than 80 miles per hour or more than 20 miles per hour above the posted limit, can lead to a charge of reckless driving, a misdemeanor criminal charge. When you saw the officer’s flashing lights in your rear view mirror, you may have anticipated a traffic ticket. You likely didn’t expect that speeding could land you in jail or result in more than $2,000 in fines. For help fighting your criminal reckless driving charge, call an experienced Stafford County speeding ticket lawyer (or click here).
Though practically every driver has been guilty of speeding at some point in his or her life, for a few Virginia drivers the act of speeding can have dire consequences. If someone is convicted of reckless driving by speed, he or she faces heavy fines, driving restrictions, loss of license, jail time, and a criminal record that can complicate employment options, educational opportunities, and more. Those charged with any criminal act are advised to seek legal counsel from a qualified Stafford County speeding ticket attorney. As a criminal misdemeanor charge, the same applies to reckless driving by speed. For the best defense against your Class 1 misdemeanor charge, contact a dedicated Stafford County speeding ticket with a demonstrated record of success.
