First-time speeder gets 20 days in jail from substitute district court judge

Mark Holmberg of the Richmond paper has this column ("Little mercy: Goochland judge gave jail time to fast drivers," 8/15/04) about the substitute General District Court judge who gave a fellow with an otherwise clean driving record who was caught driving 90+ mph on Interstate 64 20 days in jail for reckless driving. The article notes that the prosecutor expected a lesser sentence from the Circuit Court on appeal.
