If I got a reckless driving ticket deferred and now just got a speeding ticket, will this affect my deferral?

It depends on how long ago the deferral was.  In WA, if a person receives another speeding ticket within 12 months, the court will revoke the deferral.  You should speak with an attorney to see if you can beat the speeding ticket and for negotiations with the prosecutor.
