24-Year-Old Woman Avoids Suspension After An Excessive Speeding ChargeMay 24 2016 in Case Results, Traffic Offenses
Our attorneys recently handled a case involving a 24-year-old home health care worker, with an excessive speeding charge after being stopped going 36 miles over the speed limit. Under Pennsylvania law, a speeding charge in excess of 31 miles per hour is a five point offense, which results in a 15-day license suspension, and a Department of Transportation review that may increase the length of the suspension. The young woman had no prior points on her license and wanted to avoid a suspension, which would endanger her position; therefore, she contacted Worgul, Sarna & Ness, Criminal Defense Attorneys.
Ultimately, we were able to negotiate and reduced the excessive speeding charge to going 10 miles per hour over the limit. This is a two point infraction, but our client was happy to avoid the suspension and didn’t need to explain losing her license to her employer.
The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
