A bench trial has been set for lawyer David George Banes, who is facing a traffic case after being cited by a police officer for reckless driving along Dandan Road.
In a status conference last Thursday, Superior Court Associate Judge Joseph Camacho ordered Banes to show up for a bench trial on Jan. 28, 2019, at 9am.
At the status conference, Banes appeared pro se, on behalf of himself. Chief prosecutor Michele Harris represented the government.
Reckless driving is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of $1,000 or six months imprisonment or both.
Police officer L. Lizama issued the citation versus Banes last Sept. 3. The lawyer was allegedly driving a red Toyota vehicle on Dandan Road about 4:30pm.
