Reckless Driving Case Dismissed With Small FineAug 17 2015 in Case Results, Traffic Offenses
A 30-year-old man was charged with reckless and careless driving after he was driving on the highway and a car backed out of an entry way. Our client was unable to stop in time and tried to get out of the way but ended up rear-ending another car. A police officer showed up on the scene, took statements from witnesses and charged him regardless of not being present during the occurrence. Careless driving is a three point offense and Reckless driving is a three point offense which carries a 90-day mandatory suspension, so the attorneys at Worgul, Sarna & Ness, Criminal Defense Attorneys, LLC were concerned.
At the hearing, the officer agreed to negotiate for a small fine and before the officer testified, attorney Samir Sarna motioned to dismiss because the officer had no witnesses present. The judge agreed and dismissed the case. The duration of the case from start to dismissal took about three to four weeks.
