    You need to check whether you were convicted of speed (a traffic ticket) or reckless driving (a misdemeanor criminal offense). You can do this by going to the Virginia State Supreme Court's website at http://epwsgdp1.courts.state.va.us/gdcourts/captchaVerification.do?landing=landing After entering the database, enter the county where you were tried and your name.

    The City of Alexandria is not going to reduce her charge because of her record or because she is a nice person. If they reduce her DUI to a reckless they will do so because they are seriously concerned about losing the case. You need to hire a DUI attorney who know what they are doing and who can find a defense to her charge.

As far as preparing for trial I would recommend: 1) Draft a detailed typed letter to your attorney spelling out every detail of this incident. Writing down what happened will help preserve your memory and will help communicate more effectively with your attorney. 2) Write a detailed typed...

    Many of those letters are from attorney who are not licensed in va. I have seen some scam letters too. Get an attorney for your shoplifting case and show the letter to your attorney.

    Only if you are found guilty of a criminal offense. Definitely talk to an attorney, these cases are won at a much higher rate than many other types of traffic offenses.
