This isn’t the first time that you’ve been accused of committing a crime in Virginia. You are currently on probation as a sentence for another crime. As you well know by now, there are specific terms related to your probation. One of those terms likely prevents you from committing a crime. An arrest—even before you are convicted—may violate the terms of your probation.
Probation Violation Is a Serious Legal Matter
If you are accused of a reckless driving crime while you are on probation in Virginia then you have two legal problems:
You face potential probation revocation. This may mean that you need to serve jail time or another sentence imposed by the court for the crime for which you are currently serving probation.
You face potential legal consequences related to the reckless driving charges pending against you. This may include jail time, fines, and other penalties.
If you are found to have violated the terms of your probation agreement and if you are found to be guilty of reckless driving then you may have to serve both sentences consecutively, and you may lose your freedom for a long time.
