Street Racing and Criminal Speeding

March 27, 2017

Client charged with street racing, faced up to 6 months jail, 3 years probation, $2500 fine plus surcharge, driver’s license suspension. Police told client that they saw him racing from their stationary position, on foot, in an intersection, with Client’s car coming in their direction in a single traffic lane and could tell he was racing by the noise the car made. Client said no deals (rightfully so), so the prosecution added a charge of criminal speeding. Got my investigator and my vehicular expert witness ready and set for trial. No police reports, no cooperation on interviews from the police. Two days prior to trial, state dismisses (and so they should have).
