Reckless Driving by Speed – Fairfax County

Reckless Driving (83mph/55mph zone) – Virginia Code section 46.2-862 – Class 1 Misdemeanor with a maximum punishment of up to 12 months in jail and/or a fine of $2,500.00. Reckless driving also carries with it 6 demerit points that remain on a driver’s record for 11 years.

Case Disposition: Charge reduced to speeding with a $75 fine plus court costs. Unlike reckless driving, speeding is not a misdemeanor conviction. This was an important factor in this case because my client was in the process of a character and fitness review which a misdemeanor conviction could have jeopardized.

The results shown above are actual case dispositions achieved by Criminal Defense Attorney, Dontae L. Bugg.  Please note that the results of these cases are contingent upon a number of factors unique to each case and previous results to not guarantee or predict future results.  Client privacy is of the utmost importance.  Thus, client names or identifying facts will not be published.
