Hi, thanks for your opinion. If you read my email, it clearly states that I had already appealed the case. The original conviction was almost 8 months ago. I dragged it out as long as I could to buy time so I could get community service hours in, do the courses and try to prepare for the worst which has happened. Worst for me because I lost my license.
I am wondering if I move to Maryland if the MVA would consider giving me the right to drive in their state in spite of the fact that I am suspended in Va? Any chance there? I would of course answer all questions truthfully on the application for a license including 'yes' to "are you suspended to drive in another state?"
My attorney argued but the judge said that 120 MPH is just too high so he could not issue me a restricted license. He was told that I drive a TRUCK which is much slower than my high performance mustang. He was told that my truck has all my tools and supplies and it is my sole source of income yet he just didn't seem to get it! The cop lied by saying things that just weren't true or even slightly actual! I think he's the kind of guy that used to get beat up at school. He's a greasy short pale skinned blonde haired cop goes by the name of Officer Lowery. He is probably in his late 20's and has the voice of a kid and probably the IQ of a retarded ameba protozoa! Comical!
Another problem is I received another ticket a few months ago for going 79/55. We went to trial
on that and got it reduced to 'improper'. Still I lost my ability to say "hey judge, I haven't gotten in any trouble in 8 months". Sucks!
Thing is, the significant thing is that taking my license away has the grave potential to destroy my life! I am on the edge financially! Litterally! I have one months rent paid, this month and I haven't earned a dime since I got out of jail, lost 2 jobs I could have done already because I can't drive LEGALLY! I am afraid to try to get away with it. The cops would cuff and stuff me and I'd have to serve out the remaining 20 days of my sentence minimally. I'd probably be suspended for a longer period of time too! Punishment Drive just doesn't work! When are the courts and cops going to get this fact straight in their heads?
They are breeding criminality by committing injustices on people via abuse and other draconian means! Fairfax county courts have the reputation of being EVIL. I am not kidding you! Ask anyone who has been there or works there and has a conscience!
So what say you now counselor? Again, thanks for talking with me about this very dire and worrisome situation. I really appreciate it!
