Client Charged With Misdemeanor Hit And Run. Case Dismissed.
Our client in this matter was charged with violating California Penal Code 20002, leaving the scene of an accident without exchanging information. The client was taken into custody following the incident. We appeared at the arraignment of this matter and argued that the Defendant should be released on is own promise to appear. We were able to have the client be released from jail without posting any bail.
We successfully defended this matter and were able to reach a resolution of this case with a dismissal of the criminal charges against our client.
Our client had a high paying position which would have fired him if he had any misdemeanor convictions on his record. If you take a look at page 4 of the attached criminal docket, you will see it states, “THE CASE IS ORDERED DISMISSED”.
It should be noted that we were able to resolve this case by way of a CIVIL COMPROMISE, which is a difficult proposition for many district attorneys. Essentially, all criminal charges are dismissed against the client. Here, our client was responsible for the damages he caused. In our agreement, as long as he paid for the damages he caused, the entire criminal case was dismissed. A true success story of another happy client at KIA LAW FIRM.
