Court today!!!! Rappahonnock county! - January 12, 2010, 06:26 AM

Well today I have court and no i have nothing ready !!! Charges are Reckless driving / No Motorcycle license. Had a bad accident in RT-211 Skyline Dr. So im hopping that once I get there the Jude will grant me time to look for a Lawyer or something. Because lawyers in Rappahonnock county are charging up the yin-yan there... I just don't have all that money to pay right now with all these holiday just passing by. Well my question is can i take a lawyer from Fairfax or Arlington to Rappahonnock county to defend me? If so can anyone suggest a good lawyer that wont leave me down to my luck?

you can have a lawyer from anywhere but it helps to have a local one that knows judge, DA,etc...

Its too late in the game. Find the officer in the morning and talk with him about it and talk with the DA. If your clean and havnt had a ticket in awhile and do not BS them they may reduce it.

Whenever your going to court sign up before hand and complete a driving class and go get your M class before court. But that doesnt help you much.

Goodluck

I would assume that would have had to been a submitted request for extension that would have to be in before actual day of court

Reckless is a jail able offense. The Judge will ask you if you want to get one and will continue, unless he's a prick. If you have a clean record, try what Mike says, can't hurt. Get there early in a suit with a haircut and be nice.

Yea I just got the gist of how serious this offense is... the only think in my mind is " my accident was due to a rock on the pavement and that is what caused my accident" Why would i get penalized for something that is out of my control?

bring travel documents for proof if you're looking for continuation

"failure to maintain control of vehicle". that's why I've heard a lot of people say if you wreck, move your bike before police can show up and give you a ticket for that. not saying you got that, just saying it exists

I would think so. I don't know that much about it except it exists. even if you run into a pile of sand in the middle of a blind turn, they can getcha

they will definitely ask you if you would like a continuance so you can get a lawyer since it is a jailable offense. if you take the continuance however the next time you show up you better have a lawyer. It will not make them happy if you take the continuance and don't get a lawyer.
