Veteran Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Lawyer: Even NFL Players like Nick Fairley get traffic charges. In May of 2012 Fairley was charged with reckless driving and driving under the influence. In February, 2015, Fairley was acquitted by a jury of the DUI charge but convicted of the reckless driving charge. The acquittal came after a three day jury trial.
Veteran Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Lawyer: Fairley and his passenger had much different versions of events than the Alabama State Trooper who stopped them. According to Fairley and his passenger, Fairley had only consumed one drink that day and did not show any effects from that drink. According to the Trooper, Fairley was clearly impaired, obviously drunk and definitely intoxicated. All agreed that both Fairley and his passenger, Fatima Alhassan, had red solo cups and there were two alcoholic beverage containers open in the vehicle.
Veteran Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Lawyer: Fairley declined to take the evidential breath test after being arrested leaving the government without a number. The jury fined Fairley $500.00 for his reckless driving; he was driving his Cadillac Escalade around 100 miles per hour on Interstate 10. The Trooper also testified that he had to chase Fairley for three miles with lights and sirens before Fairley would pull over.
Veteran Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Lawyer: Fairley was very happy and noted that he need to focus on football. At present he is without a team as he was let go by the Detroit Lions. As of March 10, 2015, Fairley will be a Free Agent and hopes to be quickly picked up by a good team that needs his services.
Fairley was very fortunate to have a very good lawyer and an understanding jury. A DUI conviction might have ended his NFL Career.
