It is never too late to write a letter. Even if you present it in court. Keep in mind that you will want to be very careful on how you word the letter depending on your plea of not guilty/guilty. If you are planning on making atonement, be truthful. You can give reasons of why you did this as long as they do not come across as excuses and not taking the blame.

I HAVE A FRIEND THAT IS LOCKED UP ON A VIOLATION PROBATION AND WANT ME TO WRITE A LETTER AS A STATING HIS CHARACTER?

I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO WORD THIS LETTER

Character letters should include how long you have known the person, difficult situations they helped you overcome or overcame themselves, and how this person has acted around you while on probation. If you would like to state that they were an exemplary citizen before the violation, state instances to back you up on this statement. Really what will come across with impact is if you write this straight from your heart and not over thinking. Be truthful and above all let the court know how your friend has tried so hard to maintain his status out of prison.

You will need to state financial hardship. Also, if you can't take time off of work, use that as an excuse for reasons to not be able to go. Give the option of attending over a phone call. This will help you with approval. You also can offer to plead guilty and pay the fine. The court usually does not deny if you give them an option like appearing in court over the phone. You could also hire a lawyer to represent you in court depending on how serious the reckless driving indictment was. If you risk losing your license or car insurance then it may be worth hiring an attorney to represent you. States share information regarding tickets and points on your driving history so do not risk losing your driving ability or insurance.
