  • Kelly Keegan Gets Client Continuance for Dismissal on Failure to Drive with Due Care Charges

    Charge(s): 

    On a snowy day, Kelly Keegan’s client got into a car accident when his car slid off the road. He was subsequently cited with Petty Misdemeanor Failure to Drive with Due Care – Speed Greater than Reasonable. The client frequently drove for his job, and worried about the consequences of this conviction on his record. When he tried to contact the prosecutor directly, he was told he would not be permitted to just pay a fine. Upon being hired, Kelly was able to negotiate a continuance for dismissal for her client, meaning that as long as he paid a fine and avoided any new traffic violations, the charges would be dismissed after one year. Kelly thus successfully avoided the negative consequences her client feared.
