Recently, a client came to my office after receiving a ticket for reckless driving in Colorado Springs. Reckless Driving in Colorado is an eight point offense and carries up to ninety days jail. My client was upset because he spoke to the District Attorney’s Office and received an offer to plead guilty to Reckless Driving with probation and community service. There was no hint of being willing to offer a fine or reduce the points to something more manageable – just plead to the charge and be on probation. Naturally, my client did not like the idea of having his insurance rates go up due to the reckless driving charge, having the stigma and inconvenience of being on probation, and the expense and time loss of doing community service. It was especially upsetting to my client because from his perspective he was innocent of any crime. He was not about to plead guilty to something he did not do. As a good criminal defense attorney should do, I decided to look into the charges in greater detail.
