Finding a Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Lawyer:  Because Virginia reckless driving charges are Class One Misdemeanors a conviction means a permanent criminal record.   In Virginia you cannot expunge a conviction so if you are convicted and do not successfully appeal you cannot rid yourself of this black mark.

In many Virginia Courts the Judges are considering active jail time for drivers found traveling 90 or more miles per hour.  As a misdemeanor a reckless driving charge also carries the possibility of a suspended license for up to six months and a fine up to $2,500.00.   In addition to the direct consequences, a reckless driving conviction also carries with it:

1. A significant increase in your Automobile Insurance Premiums.  Some surveys indicate that the conviction will boost your rates by 20% or more.

2. Problems getting or maintaining a security clearance.  One reckless driving conviction may not kill a security clearance but it certainly raises issues about your judgment.

3.  A risk that your job may be affected.  If you drive a company vehicle for a living the insurance costs may force your company to terminate you.

Many people, including athletes get charged with reckless driving by speed.  In August of 2015, Cambridge United Striker Jordan Slew was clocked at 156 miles per hour in his M4 BMW. That 156 mph is thought to be the fastest motorist stopped in Britain in the last three years.  Slew entered a guilty plea and lost his license for six months with a 1,400 pound fine.  Slew probably did not see the police officer pursuing him since the police officer was unable to catch Slew for three miles.  Slew was eventually stopped because traffic forced him to slow down to 130 miles per hour.  Slew recently signed a eighteen month contract with League Two side Cambridge United.  His previous contract was for one million pounds.

Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Lawyer:  P.J. Williams, formerly of the Florida State University Football team, recently beat a DWI charge.  Williams was arrested in Tallahassee driving around a group of his intoxicated friends.  Williams was getting ready to lose millions in bonus money from the NFL draft due to his DWI charge. Williams had apparently been out partying with his friends, celebrating his coming good fortune.  Williams is a very talented cornerback and was scheduled and is now probably still scheduled to go high in the draft.  The head prosecutor in his case announced in the last days of April, 2015 that the charges were dropped.  The reason given for dropping these charges was the failure of the arresting officer to video the field tests.

Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Lawyer:  Hopefully Williams understands how fortunate he is.  Nationwide only about 8% or people charged with DWI are not convicted of DWI.  In other words, 92% of all people charged with DWI nationwide are convicted of DWI.  That is not exactly a charge constantly being derailed by loopholes.  Loophole in the context of DWI prosecutions is the requirement that law enforcement obey the Constitution in pursuing DWI convictions.  The belief of MADD and similar groups is that everyone charged with DWI, no matter what the evidence, is guilty of DWI.  MADD will only be happy with 100% convictions.

Experienced Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Attorney:  People need to understand that Law Enforcement is trained to use any opportunity to find contraband and charge them for it.  In April, 2015, Shane Ray, an NFL prospect, was stopped for speeding in Cooper County, Missouri on Route 70.  During the traffic stop, the Missouri Trooper confronted Ray about smelling unburnt marijuana.  While it is not a great feat to smell burning marijuana it is rather amazing to smell unburnt marijuana.  The Trooper declared that the smell gave him probable cause to search.  In that search, the Trooper found a very small amount of marijuana.  Ray was released upon a summons.  Ray was not impaired.  Ray was charged with a misdemeanor possession and only warned about his speed.

Experienced Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Attorney:  Ray made the following statement:  “I’d like to apologize to my Mother, Fans and prospective NFL teams for my poor judgement Monday morning,” Ray said in a statement. “I am embarrassed and realize there are consequences for my actions. I was not under the influence nor impaired , therefore I was not detained. Fortunately, Mondays incident only resulted in a citation. I will make better choices in the future. It is imperative that I continue to strive to better myself. My future NFL career has been something I have always dreamed about and is very important to me. I commit that my actions will represent that. There are no excuses here and I will take the necessary steps to ensure this will not happen again. I will not jeopardize my ability to have a positive impact on and off the field moving forward.”

Experienced Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Attorney:  Ray came out early for the 2015 NFL draft.  He was the Southeastern Conference’s Defensive Player of the Year last year.  He set his team’s quarterback sack record for a season.  Ray was projected to go in the First Round of the Draft prior to this marijuana charge.
