FAIRFAX VIRGINIA ATTORNEY RESULT: Class 1 Misdemeanor Reckless Driving by Speeding 101 in a 55 (VA Code 46.2-862), with officer’s testimony that his cruiser was going 131 MPH and the client was speeding away from him at a higher speed than that (the 101 was the speed the officer initially registered on his radar device, prior to initiating the stop), resulted in a plea deal with the defendant having to serve less than a day in jail, a $400 fine, and 2 months suspension of his license, with permission for a restricted license.

(Judges will generally penalize first time offenders with 1-2 days in jail for each mile exceeding 90 miles per hour, so this client expected at least 11 to 22 days in jail, notwithstanding the testimony regarding speeding over 130 MPH.)

Fairfax County General District Court at 4110 Chain Bridge Road, Fairfax, Virginia.
