Case #: CT0064XXXX NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The Defendant’s vehicle was observed stopped at a red light. Upon receiving a green light, the vehicle abruptly accelerated from the stopped position. The vehicle broke traction with the ground and chirped the tires when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. The vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed well above the speed limit. The Defendant then made a U-turn and proceeded at a high rate of speed toward a parking lot. The Defendant was charged with Criminal Exhibition of Speed (a violation of the Racing statute). After speaking with the Assistant State Attorney regarding the facts and the applicable law, the firm was able to convince the State Attorney to dismiss the charge.
