Case #: 173**18
Our client was accused of cutting off another driver, causing an accident and then leaving the scene of that accident. On the day of trial the Assistant State Attorney indicated that all their witnesses were present and stated they were ready to go forward with the trial. Our client felt awful about the situation and asked our attorneys to quickly resolve the case. Our attorneys, however, immediately began interviewing the state witnesses and it became clear that none of them were able to identify our client. As it turns out, the Assistant State Attorney had subpoenaed the wrong witnesses. Upon realizing their mistake they requested a continuance and the Judge denied their request. The State was forced to dismiss the charges against our client.
