They are very real

First, there is an invertigation report; done by Shallotte PD, an outside agency, not the sheriff's office.

Second, charging her with careless and reckless driving is normal in any case like this. I have taken many, many wrecks in my years as an officer and that is one of the most common charges I write. I have written people I clocked on RADAR at 100+ for C&R. Why is she supposed to be different?

Third, the 60 day revocation will come from DMV. Any additional revocation would come from the court. DMV doesn't care who you are, if you are convicted of a driving offense that warrants revocation, they will take your license. I recently charged a 16 y/o with willful speed competition and he lost his license at the hands of the DMV. Not the judge. The DMV.

And lastly. You have a problem with her keeping her job. Let's say for instance she worked for, UPS, FedEx or Dominos. All require a license to deliver. Each one of these employers would evaluate her past performance as an employee and place her somewhere else in the organization to allow her to keep working. She's not special. She's human. She wasn't under the influence of an impairing substance. She was speeding. She messed up.

Yes I do know Samantha but I do not condone in any way her driving that fast. There is no excuse for it. It was stupid. However, termination is excessive.
