61-Year-Old Veteran Achieves Reduced Speeding CitationNov 04 2016 in Case Results, Criminal Defense, Traffic Offenses
A 61-year-old Navy veteran was recently stopped in a residential area and ticketed for going 34 miles over the 25 miles per hour limit. If convicted, this speeding citation would result in the addition of five points to his Pennsylvania license and the possible loss of his driving privileges. This was justifiably a very unattractive prospect for him and he wanted to evaluate any alternatives with the knowledgeable Pennsylvania traffic attorneys with Worgul, Sarna & Ness, Criminal Defense Attorneys, LLC.
Attorney Matthew Ness reviewed the man’s driving record as well as the details of his current speeding citation. He utilized all of this information and his considerable experience in traffic court to negotiate for a more favorable result. During the course of these negotiations, attorney Ness achieved a radical reduction to the offense, where his client agreed to plead to only going five miles per hour over the limit. This arrangement allowed his client to pay a small fine, but he wouldn’t have any points added to his record or run the risk of a license suspension.
