Legal Answers

Q. I was pulled over in Fairfax Virginia for reckless driving ticket of 103mph in a 55 I’m afraid of going to jail I don’t
A: Jail sentences are commonly imposed at speeds of 100 mph and higher. To improve your chances of a reduced penalty, you could consider performing community service at a charitable institution, proactively taking a driver safety course before the court date, have a calibration done on your vehicle's speedometer, and obtain letters from employers/educators/etc. vouching for your good character (if you perform community service, a manager at the institution you assist might be willing to do this as well). You mentioned that your record is clean, so consider obtaining a copy of your clean DMV transcript to show to the judge (the officer will likely have a copy, too, but it doesn't hurt to have a copy of your own to present). Paint the best picture possible for the judge, and make it clear that you are remorseful and have learned from the incident. ... Read More
Q. Under current law, if a loved one is convicted of second degree murder, do they qualify for earned time credits?
A: Yes, if the offense was committed on or after January 1, 1995, they are eligible for sentence credits even with a 2nd degree murder conviction. A maximum of 4.5 sentence credits may be earned for each 30 days served on a sentence for a 2nd degree murder conviction.
Q. I have a failure to yield ticket is it worth getting a lawyer to go to court
A: This will depend on a number of factors. These include, but are not limited to, the following: how comfortable you are testifying and presenting evidence in court, whether you feel like you have a legitimate chance of beating or reducing the charge as alleged and would prefer an experienced advocate arguing your case, whether you feel there's a need to have a lawyer explain the court process from start to finish (including potential civil ramifications of a motor vehicle collision), etc. If it's a highly contested case then having an advocate with some emotional distance from the incident and its costs might carry some benefits, regardless of your rhetorical skill.
