Our client was exhausted, driving home after a long day of work and being up late with his kids the night before. On the way home, traffic suddenly stopped and he hit the car in front of him, not once, but twice.

Terrified, our client took off and was ultimately charged with the criminal traffic offense, hit and run. The result? Hit and run dismissed. Our client made the right move and called criminal defense lawyer, Aaron J. Boria (734) 453-7806.

The driver of the other vehicle obtained our client’s license plate and the police were able to quickly track him down. When the police got to our client’s house, he initially denied the hit and run, but ultimately admitted the he was the driver.

Leaving the Scene of a Property Damage Accident

Leaving the Scene of a Property Damage Accident, more commonly known as hit and run, is a criminal offense that carries up to 93 days in jail, a $500 fine plus costs, and 6 points on your driving record.

Again, this is a criminal offense that ends up on your driving record as well as your criminal record. Not only is there a possibility of jail or probation, the six points is likely to increase your insurance significantly.

Criminal Lawyer Plymouth Michigan

We were able to get the prosecutor to dismiss the hit and run misdemeanor in exchange for a plea to a violation of the Motor Vehicle Code. 

A violation of the motor vehicle code carries a small fine. There are 0 points, and best of all it doesn’t abstract, so the offense will not appear on our client’s driving record so the insurance company will never know about it. This new offense will not appear on a criminal background search either. It is almost like it never happened . . .

Legally, there is still the potential of jail time, but the judge didn’t order any of it. Our client paid a fine and left the courthouse finished with the case.
