Judge dismisses motorcyclist for evading police at 128mph

Judge dismisses motorcyclist for evading police at 128mph

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20051207/...ckless__charge

Wed Dec 7, 4:35 PM ET

NEBRASKA CITY, Neb. - Speeding is not necessarily reckless, even at 128 mph, a judge ruled in the case of a motorcyclist who tried to flee from state troopers.

With some reluctance, County Judge John Steinheider ruled last week that Jacob H. Carman, 20, was not guilty of reckless driving on Sept. 5, when he was spotted by a trooper who then chased him at the top speed of his cruiser's odometer 128 mph.

"As much as it pains me to do it, speed and speed alone is not sufficient to establish reckless driving," the judge told Carman on Friday. "If you had had a passenger, there would be no question of conviction. If there had been other cars on the roadway, if you would've went into the wrong lane or anything, I would have convicted you."

Otoe County prosecutor David Partsch acknowledged that Carman could have been charged with speeding but, "We felt that the manner in which he was operating the motorcycle was reckless."

Carman didn't get off entirely. He was fined $300 for expired tags and other violations.

the cop dropped the ball, should have got him for speeding instead. Ive always questioned the "reckless because of speed, way of thinking."

doesn't an odometer measure distance and a speedometer measures speed?

The cop did not catch the guy during the pursuit, he caught up in town later that day. The cop car had a limiter, so all he knew is the 2 bikes were going 128+, because he couldn't go any faster than 128

Don't forget that in Texas the popo can put you in the clink for any traffic violation other than speeding and open container. On those two offenses they have to write a citation. But don't be fooled ... any popo worth his weight in doughnuts is gonna find something else to put you in jail on if he want's to.
