Fighting client’s reckless driving charge in Atlanta City Court:
On January 13, 2019, I appeared with my client in the Atlanta City Court. 
My client was charged with reckless driving and speeding 104 mph in a 55 mph zone. 

Georgia code 40-6-390 states that “any person who drives any vehicle in a reckless for safety of persons or property commits the offense of reckless driving.”
Reckless driving, unlike most other traffic violations in Georgia, is considered to be a criminal misdemeanor and is punishable by up to 12 months in jail,  or a fine of up to $1000 or both if convicted of the charge.

After considerable negotiation with the prosecutor, I was able to get the court to reduce my client’s speed from 104 mph in a 55 mph zone, to 84 mph in a 55 mph zone.  
Although my client’s speed is now 29 mph over the limit and this can add five points to his driving record, I arranged for a plea of Nola. 
This Nola plea will eliminate his super speeder points.

My client will have to complete 50 hours of community service and defensive driving class. He was ordered to pay a fine of $750.

This result turns out to be a wonderful resolution of these charges for my client.
