On Wednesday 6/21/18 I appeared in Alpharetta City Court to defend a client against hit and run.
Georgia code 40 – 6–270, defines hit and run as leaving the scene of an accident.
Hit and run is a criminal misdemeanor, however if someone is injured, hit and run can be charged as a felony.
My first client of the day had received a ticket for hit and.
This ticket was his first in a lifetime traffic ticket.
After striking a parked car my client wasn’t able to find the driver.
Georgia Law requires that if you cannot find the driver of the vehicle that was hit,
you are required to leave identifying contact information including your name and telephone number in a prominent location.
In this particular case my client was unaware of the law and left the scene of the accident.
He was contacted by the police the next day and required to come to the police station for an interview.
Following consultation with the prosecutor I was able to get this charge dismissed.
This is another very happy client of the Alpharetta, Georgia hit and run defense attorney Scott Miller
