Leave Scene of Property Damage
Negligent Operation of Motor Vehicle
Client was a young man was out partying with two friends when all them of them got in a car accident. After the accident, fingers pointed in different directions as to who was the driver, or “operator”. In the end, after police arrested a person who the police incorrectly thought was the driver, the other two young men stepped forward and under oath stated that the defendant was not the driver. Despite those assertions, the case was required to process though several court hearings, with a trial date set. On day of trial, District Attorney, in good judgement simply dismissed the case as there would be insufficient evidence to move forward any longer and a dismissal was entered on both charges. Case Dismissed.
RESULT: Both charges, DISMISSED.
