Charged with Hit & Run?
The penalties for hit and run vary depending upon the circumstances in the case. When there is only property damage, the charge is usually a misdemeanor - but that does not mean that you will not suffer from the force of the legal system. You may still face up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000 not with added court fees if you are convicted. In some cases of hit and run, the individual did not realize that they had damaged another's property, whether a pet, vehicle or other property. Whatever your situation is, the law requires that if you failed to leave a note, contact the property owner or in serious cases, the police, you are likely to be charged with hit & run.
In cases in which another person was injured in an accident and you are accused of hit & run or leaving the scene of an accident, this is a felony offense and carries severe penalties, including up to 5 years in state prison and a $10,000 fine. This is a very serious charge, and as such requires a skilled defense lawyer to protect your rights and fight to defend you in court. Ivan O.B. Morse, Attorney at Law uses the experience and knowledge of the law acquired over years in service to the community to defend serious criminal charges. We are prepared to discuss your case with you and advise you how to move forward with your defense. It is critical that you act quickly, as certain evidence that may assist in your defense may need to be acquired for your case.
