Reckless Driving in Pittsylvania Dismissed on Probable Cause

We recently helped a man in his mid-50s who was charged with reckless driving. At the time of the alleged offense, he was involved in a late night rear-end accident. The case was heard in Pittsylvania County General District Court.

Roanoke reckless driving lawyer Cerid Lugar represented the client on one court date. Her defense focused on the fact that the Commonwealth did not subpoena any witnesses and could not prove the case. The officer’s testimony was not enough for a reckless driving by accident case – the other driver needed to be present. Since the other party was not present, the statement was not admissible. We were able to negotiate a dismissal of the reckless driving charge on probable cause motion to strike.

Case results depend upon a variety of factors unique to each case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any future case.
