You should speak to a qualified attorney in Harris County about your options and have a great explanation ready for why you were go so fast. In this type of case, it is critical to try to negotiate the speed down to something substantially less than the 103 speed you were written. Accomplishing this makes the infraction look better to the military, may bring you out of the superspeeder category , and will also help your car insurance rates.
You will need to comply with DDS requirements to get your license back. Assuming it has been five years since the conviction, you should be able to get your license back (assuming you are otherwise eligible) by showing proof you have completed the GA risk Reduction school and by paying the reinstatement fee. Because you sat out the whole five years you should not have to put an ignition interlock on your car, but you may bead to get a financial hardship order if DDS seeks to require this.
You can look up and call the ga DDS in Conyers. Speak to someone in the revoked license section. They can confirm your eligibility for a limited license. If the DDS doesn't give you the answer you are looking for, then go see Bob Daniel
Medical School and Law School applicatons when dealing with a DUI charge (even reduced to reckless driving) are always tricky. Generally, experienced background examiners who see the reckless driving conviction already know there is a high probability that the reckless driving disposition resulted from an initial DUI charge that was plead down. With that said, I feel that disclosure of the full facts generally is a good policy. I think that in explaining the situation, you can often impress...
The location of the observed violation is the county with jurisdiction over the offense. For example if I run a stop sign in Cobb County that is observed by a Cobb County Police Officer, but that police officer does not get me stopped until after I cross the Fulton County border, that is not a defense. It doesnt matter where he stopped you so long as he observed the offense within his jurisdiction.
You may want to go to court and ask for a pre-trial conference with the Solicitor. Explain the circumstances in mitigation of your alleged speeding and ask for the Solicitor's help in resolving the ticket.
If the time is substantially different this could provide a technical defense, but not if off by just minutes. Lighting discrepancies in a speeding case are not likely to be an effective argument. Soeeding cases are tough to win. Depending on your record it might be a good idea to negotiate to a lesser speed.
The two previous posters are absolutely correct. You may want to go ahead and take the defensive driving course early to show you are accepting responsibility. You can find an approved defensive driving class at www.dds.ga.gov. If the court allows a reduction to 14 mph or under it will not pur any points on your license. This is an area where ou should get a lawyer involved if you have the funds.
As a former law enforcement officer, I agree with Mr. Proctor that a Radar speeding case is difficult to beat. The only speed detection device case tougher to beat in the speeding arena is a LIDAR (LASER) Given your age and lack of significant traffic offenses, it would be wise to speak with the prosecutor. Since at least 1999, all law enforcement officers certified in the operation of radar devices have been trained in visual estimation as a part of the GA POST Certtification for a Radar...
