Werth was pulled over in July by Virginia State Police after driving 105 mph in a 55 mph zone and Werth did not necessarily disagree with the assessment.
"It's possible I exceeded 90 miles per hour," Werth said in court.
Werth was initially convicted of reckless driving Dec. 5, but appealed the verdict. He was originally sentenced to 10 days in jail, but it was reduced to five after Werth's guilty plea.
The prosecutor said Werth will turn himself in Friday and begin serving his sentence, according to NBC4's Northern Virginia Bureau.Analysis:

Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill agreed and said Monday about Fernandez's return, "We’re still thinking June, July area."
“Once we get him on the mound, we’ll get a little more clarity," Hill said. "When you’re dealing with those injuries, you’re always cautiously optimistic.
“He’s worked extremely hard. He’s done a tremendous job doing everything he needs to do to get himself back. We won’t put a timetable on it. We don’t want him to feel any pressure.”
The 22-year-old Fernandez was a breakout star in 2013. He not only made the All-Star team, but he won the NL Rookie of the Year and finished third in the NL Cy Young race. Fernandez made eight starts in 2014 before having Tommy John surgery.Analysis:
"The more the season went on it just got worse and worse and worse," Revere said.
He also received much scarier news from doctors after the season was over.
"The doctors told me after the surgery that the screws were going into my nerves and that is what was causing all the pain," Revere said. "They told me I was lucky I didn't get any nerve damage or anything. It's fully healed now. I can do everything. I can do power lifting. I couldn't even squat last year. I'm squatting 400 pounds now. Last year, my hamstring [shut] down, my quads were weak. Now, I'm getting all my strength back."
New Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said he thinks Revere needs to work on his extra-base hitting heading into the 2015 season.
"He hasn't found his full stride on what he can do on a baseball field," Sandberg said. "He's a strong kid, but he hits all singles. For me, that doesn't add up. I see him as a potential 30 to 40 doubles type of a hitter mainly because he makes so much contact and he is strong. He has the ability to pop the ball to the gaps and down the lines. He does use the whole field when he hits and he's a base stealer, so for me that shows the potential to translate into a doubles hitter."
Revere hit .306 in 2014 with 28 RBI and 71 runs scored in 601 at-bats.Analysis:
