ALEXANDRIA VIRGINIA CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY RESULT:
Contentious hearing for a Class 1 Misdemeanor Reckless Driving offense for Speeding 25 MPH over the speed limit (VA Code 46.2-862) resulted in the Defense prevailing over the Government and the Judge REDUCING the criminal Misdemeanor offense to a non-criminal Improper Driving violation (and half the points) with just a fine as the penalty. The Government argued that this was a second offense speeding over 20 MPH and therefore the client should not be eligible for the reduction of the charge from a Misdemeanor. We prevailed.
City of Alexandria General District Court at 520 King Street, Alexandria, Virginia 22314.
