Q: I went 95 in a 65 and got reckless driving on top of that. Will this go on my high-school resume or affect college admis
A: It only goes on your high school resume if you put it on your resume. You're the one that writes a resume for job or college applications. Will affect your admission into college? That really depends on the questions that are asked of you on the applications that you submit. There could be questions about whether you have ever had law enforcement contact. You should get an attorney to minimize the consequences that you might face in this case.
A: It won't if you avoid a conviction. A defense lawyer could help with that, either private or public defender. A misdemeanor traffic crime is not the most serious crime, but it's never good to have a criminal record - even a minor one. And it could influence how police view that driver for the next several years. Everyone must make their own choices. Mine would be to fight it. Why not?
