Reeder & Brown, P.C.



Joliet Aggravated Speeding Lawyer

Traffic Violations Lawyers Serving Will County

When you are pulled over for a traffic violation, you may think that your best course of action is to be polite and respectful with the police officer and accept the ticket, whether you agree with it or not. You may also be inclined to plead guilty by paying the fine so you can move on with your life. At Reeder & Brown, P.C., we know the impact that a traffic offense can have on your ability to drive and support your family. We also realize that some violations go well beyond a ticket and are considered criminal offenses. If you have been charged with aggravated speeding, simply paying the fine and moving on is not an option.

Counsel for Aggravated Speeding Charges

In Illinois, aggravated speeding is a serious offense, and a conviction could follow you for the rest of your life. Illinois law defines aggravated speeding as driving 26 miles per hour (mph) or more over the posted speed limit. The associated charges and penalties that you could face will depend on how fast you were actually driving.

Aggravated speeding between 26 and 34 mph above a posted speed limit is considered a Class B misdemeanor. A conviction could result in up to six months in jail and fines of up to $1,500. Driving 35 miles per hour or more over the posted speed limit is a Class A misdemeanor, which means you could be facing up to one year in jail and fines of up to $2,500.

Aggressive Criminal Defense in Plainfield and Bolingbrook

A charge of aggravated speeding may be complicated by additional factors such as speeding in a school or construction zone or causing a speed-related accident. At Reeder & Brown, P.C., our experienced attorneys are prepared to advocate on your behalf, and we will fight to ensure that your rights are never compromised. While diversionary programs and other alternatives to conviction are often available, especially for first-time offenders, we will not be intimated by prosecutors into accepting a deal that fails to protect your future properly.
