My question involves a reckless driving ticket from the State of: Indiana
I recently got a speeding ticket for doing 110 in a 70. The 70 (mph) was on an Interstate road in Edgewood Indiana (Madison County). It was around 4:00 in the morning and there were no other cars on this strip of highway. I was not under the influence of any substances. As I passed a police officer parked in the median of the highway I pulled before he could because I knew I had made a mistake. He gave me speeding ticket and sent me on my way. My court is on Thursday March 24th and I need some advice. I have a prior ticket (failure to stop or yield) on my record and I would like to know if this would affect me? Also, I called the Edgewood Courthouse to inquire about the ticket and was told that I would have to go to court because I could possibly be charged with a misdemeanor. I was wondering the likelihood that I would be charged with a misdemeanor and or have to face jail time? I have no criminal record, just the two tickets.
