A: Most speeding charges are at the non-criminal, petty misdemeanor level. But some are charged at the more serious criminal, misdemeanor level, which could mean a criminal conviction record. Any speeding conviction for a speed over 100 mph results in a Minnesota revoking the driver's license for a minimum of six months. Some prosecutors might try charging misdemeanor Careless Driving; but I would expect them to need more facts to justify that than simply speed. Clearly this is a case where an experienced criminal defense lawyer could make a big difference in the outcome. Check my website for more on speeding cases, and-or call me.
