Apple Valley Lawyer Defends You for Reckless Driving Charges

Posted on

Reckless driving is a charge that is serious by nature but can range greatly in seriousness depending upon the circumstances.  Reckless driving is driving in a manner that displays explicit disregard for the safety of other person or property.  It’s usually at least a misdemeanor and adds points to your record.  If you’ve been charged with reckless driving, you need to consult with an experienced lawyer.  David Leicht of the Law Office of David Leicht of Apple Valley, California has the expertise and experience needed to defend your reckless driving charges case.

Wet Reckless Driving Charges

If you were drinking alcoholic beverages at the time of the reckless driving charge, having a DUI charge in addition to a reckless driving charge will leave a black mark on your driving record.  In that case, it may be possible to plea bargain for a lesser charge.  A charge of “wet reckless driving” is a lesser charge than a full DUI and can mean a lighter sentence and penalties.  David Leicht is a defense attorney in Apple Valley, California who is familiar with the local law enforcement system.  He can negotiate your charges and give you your best chance of having them lessened.

Penalties for Reckless Driving

One huge determining factor as to how severe the charges and penalties are is whether anyone was injured in the incident.  A standard reckless driving charge in which no one is hurt, and there are no other complications can carry up to 90 days in jail and up to $1000 in fines.  Reckless driving charges involving severe injuries like fractures or brain trauma may result in three years in prison and may be charged as a felony.  The legal professionals at the Law Office of David Leicht of Apple Valley, California, will create your best defense so that you can get the minimum possible charges.
