We are going to freak the original poster out. To be more precise, see Title 46.2-868 of the Virginia Code. Reckless driving is a Class 1 misdemeanor unless, when the offense was committed, the driver was without a valid license because it was revoked or suspended for a moving violation AND as the sole and proximate result of the reckless driving, caused the death of another, in which case it's a Class 6 felony. So it doesn't sound like OP committed a felony, assuming he or she is in VA.
Also, OP, you should not look to this board for legal advice. The citation you received should clearly state the provision of state or local law you are alleged to have violated. A simple Google of that section reference would give you an idea of what it's about. I stick to my earlier suggestion of retaining a lawyer to help, though. Good luck.
OK. One more because this might be helpful and demonstrates why a lawyer might be worth it, but again assumes you are in VA. Section 46.2-869 gives the DA discretion to reduce reckless to improper driving. May be something similar in other jurisdictions, but that's where a good lawyer comes in. Also, most DAs will only make deals with lawyers, not accused parties.
In the BFE, the Appointee has to get a law enforcement background check form signed off in the jurisdictions where they live and go to school, if different. The traffic citation is not a conviction (yet), and would not listed in the background. They do have a question to list police contacts, so.......
I have an Loa and notified my admissions officer. All she said was "thanks for the information" and that was the end of it. Granted, my ticket was a 31 in a 15 zone.
Tonight's sports news included a note that a highly-recruited high school football star had his West Point offer rescinded because he did not disclose a disciplinary action. Just a word to the wise...
You can save a lot of money by not speeding. Gas mileage dives at higher speeds. Just sayin.
Don't worry about a speeding ticket, celebrate your achievement[emoji322]

No. Students were told that they were responsible to provide USNA any legal (traffic, civil, or criminal) changes that may occur prior to report date. However, if the ticket can be expunged (by taking a class) prior to report date, that may suffice. It might be helpful to ensure you get a statement of expungement for your records if something comes up.
