The judge could see that the only reason Stokes was cited for reckless driving was due to his prior traffic violations, and not due to the facts of what occurred in the parking lot
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) April 30, 2010
DUI Lawyers in AZ from the law offices of David Michael Cantor obtained a verdict of not guilty in the case of State v. Stokes (City of Scottsdale Court Case No. TR2008028574), a reckless driving case.
In Stokes case, the defendant was leaving a school parking lot in which a security guard was directing traffic. As the guard was directing traffic, he stepped in front of Stokes' vehicle as was bumped by the defendant's car which was traveling a mere 3 mph. As a result the security guard contacted the police, and due to the fact that Stokes had multiple prior driving violations on his record the officer decided to file a criminal charge.
At trial the judge properly found that there was no heightened risk of substantial physical injury or death as required by statute as a result the judge found that the police had overreacted and that Stokes was not guilty of reckless driving.
