Reckless Driving Ticket Appeal in Dinwiddie Circuit Court
Before the client retained me, he was unable to appear in Dinwiddie Traffic Court for his trial. As a result, he was convicted of Reckless Driving (85/70) in his absence. After learning the consequences of a Reckless Driving conviction, he decided to hire me to appeal his conviction to Dinwiddie Circuit Court. Please note that a Speeding Ticket or Reckless Driving Ticket conviction in any General District Court in the Commonwealth of Virginia can be appealed to Circuit Court within 15 days of conviction.
When the trial in Circuit Court came up two months later, I was able to reach a plea bargain with the prosecutor in which my client would plead guilty to “Defective Speedometer,” a non-moving violation which carries no points in Virginia, instead of a Reckless Driving (Misdemeanor) conviction.
