Facing Reckless Driving Charges
Hale Law Enterprises recognizes that the possibility of a reckless driving conviction on your record can be a frightening and frustrating experience. That is why Hale Law Enterprises is prepared to fight the charges against even the toughest prosecutors.
As with any crime, you are innocent until proven guilty, and the burden of proof lies with the prosecution. In a reckless driving case, the prosecution must prove that you drove in a “willful or wanton disregard of persons or property.” In this context, wanton means acting in an intentional disregard of consequences in a circumstance where it can be reasonably assumed that there is a high probability of harming someone. Another route the prosecution can take is to prove you were racing against another car, which is a second element categorized as reckless driving.
