Hit and Run Case Dismissed, Client Receives No-Points or Insurance Increase

CHARGE

Hit and Run – Palo Alto

RESULT

Dismissal

My client was a professional with no criminal record. One night while driving home he ran a red light and was accused of colliding with another vehicle in a Palo Alto intersection. Police responded to my client's home after one a passenger in the victim's vehicle obtained my client's license plate information. My client's vehicle was photographed by police with damage from the accident. We tried to resolve the case pursuant to a civil comprise (which if accepted by the court would have led to a dismissal of the criminal case). However, the victim and his family refused to cooperate. The victim wanted my client to be prosecuted for his “near death” experience. However, this case did not end with my client being convicted of a criminal hit and run under Vehicle Code § 20002(a) – which could have subjected him to up to six months in the county jail. Instead, you guessed it, my client pled no contest to a non-point traffic infraction. His insurance rates won't even go up because of this incident. Nice!
