If you are on special parole that means, in all likelihood, your total sentence was greater than three years. That means you will need to file a motion to modify the sentence but you will also need prosecutorial permission before filing. Your best bet is to contact an attorney to discuss this matter in greater detail. There are many excellent ones here on AVVO and most offer free consultations.See question

I got my first speeding ticket, going 85 in a 65. It's a $299 fine which I can't afford. What are my options? Is there any chance if i go to court I will have to pay more than the $299? The cop told me he could have gotten me for reckless driving.
Plead not guilty and mail it in. Usually the prosecutors will reduce the fine you need to pay. I respectfully disagree with my colleague who suggests that you utilize a diversionary program for a speeding ticket.See question
I got a court summons for speeding in Connecticut. The statute on the ticket is 14-219(c)(2), but reckless driving is 14-222. Does this mean I can/cannot specifically be charged with reckless driving?
Attorney Shalvoy is correct. The prosecutor can increase or decrease the charges as he/she deems appropriate.See question
I was pulled over doing 64 in a 40 zone on Rt7 in Wilton. I have been driving on Rt7 for years without any issues. The only reason I was doing 64 was to get past a careless driver who was braking for no reason and traveling at inconsistent speeds....
Attorney Young's advice is spot on. I would only add as a suggestion that when you speak to the prosecutor you act repentant and not belligerent. Also, ask if they will allow you to participate in a drivers retraining class which, if successfully completed, will result in the charges being dropped,See question

My attorney immediately requested it or subpoena it and was told it was accidentally destroyed and is not available. Is that grounds for a motion to dismiss in Connecticut? Thanks
If your attorney can establish "bad faith" on the part of the police department then it may be possible pursuant to the US Supreme Court case of Arizona v. Youngblood. Otherwise, a motion to dismiss would not succeed. As previously noted, you should be directing these questions to your attorney.See question
