Have you ever served on a jury? If yes, then what was the case and what was the verdict?
I have been called to jury duty one time. I was selected and sat on a reckless driving case involving a college kid driving sober at speeds over 120 MPH on the Fairfax County Parkway, a busy local road with a maximum speed limit of 50 MPH and the highest death toll of any road in the county.
After we found him guilty, we were provided a copy of his driving record and asked to recommend sentencing. He had several pages of traffic offenses, mostly speeding 15-19 over. this generally means that the actual speed was at least 20 over but the officer didn't want to write a ticket that would automatically require a court appearance. The offender had a ticket less than a week before our case, and another the day after.
As Reckless Driving is a class two misdeamenor in Virginia, he was sentenced to the maximum $1000 fine and two weeks in jail. There were a couple little old ladies who wanted to give him the whole six months.
EDIT: So much for my memory of a case from six years ago. After asracer pointed out it was class 1 misdemeanor, I went back through my calendar.
He was clocked at 110 MPH and his sentence was $2500 and 45 days in jail. I believe his license had already been revoked on points from his other tickets by the time his Reckless Driving case came to trial. His driving record ran a couple pages.
