--No, I disagree here. I already said the speeding ticket would be dismissed, but I think the reckless (or some form of it) will stick. Many reasons:Since the same officer made the charge of reckless and he has already proved to be lying about the speed then how can you trust the officers testamony of the reckless? Once a liar then all words cannot be trusted and you are always a liar.
--for one, the guy was speeding WAY over the limit. No way the judge is going to just let him walk.
--The publicity brought puts the judge on the spot. He has to do something to 'make an example' or at least show that such speeds will get you punished. If he let old dude walk, the impression would be that you can go really fast and get away by fighting it.
--There is probably going to be some ego at stake for the 'establishment'. And that ego is going to take a big ding when the cop is proven wrong about the speed by a large margin. I think they already know that they screwed up, and they know the speeding ticket was wrong. So I think that they'll be going aftr the other charges much more forcefully.
--Reckless is going to be easy to win on. The same math that will show he wasn't going 205 is going to show that he was still traveling godawful fast. The cop may have been off by 40mph, but he wasn't off by 140mph.
