Biker Caught Going 130 MPH Serves 15 Days in Jail

Posted:

ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - A motorcyclist who served 15 days in jail for driving 130 mph on an interstate in Roanoke wants others to learn from his mistake.

Joseph Dailey contacted The Roanoke Times after completing his sentence this week.

The former motorcross racer says he was "just out joy riding" on Interstate 581 on May 21. An officer eventually wrote him a ticket for reckless driving.

Dailey was sentenced in Roanoke General District Court to 130 days in jail and was fined $1,300. However, a judge suspended 100 days and Dailey served less than the 30 days imposed due to good behavior. And $1,000 of his fine was suspended, too, although he still owes $411, which includes court costs.

    Gov. Martin O'Malley has said he may issue an executive order creating a pilot program for reforms to criminal bail procedures. It would be the next chapter in Maryland's efforts to comply with a Court of Appeals ruling that defendants have a right to legal counsel at every bail hearing. Legislators failed to agree on a solution this past session.
