I received a reckless driving charge in northern Virginia, where I work (and on my way to work). I was going pretty fast, 91 in a 65, but it was reckless driving for speed and no other factors. Just cruising way too fast.
I have an active TS (no SCI or anything like that). Now my FSO is out and I plan on self reporting to him when he gets back in. I’ve talked to many lawyers and also have hired one. I’ve been told the most likely outcome is they stick me with the reckless driving conviction and pay some fines, but that there is a chance it could be reduced to speeding since I have a clean record and a speedometer calibration showing my cars speedometer is 3 mph off. Typically though, northern Virginia judges are not inclined to reduce the charge at a speed over 90
If I do end up with the reckless driving conviction , how will this affect my current clearance and my reinvestigation 4 years from now? I do have a clean driving and criminal record besides this occurrence, but am worried because a criminal misdemeanor would be the result of I’m convicted. Going to slowwwww down driving from now on, that’s for sure
