Case #: 20**-**-***********
Client was involved in a single vehicle accident on the highway. No witnesses observed the accident, and no witnesses could place our client behind the wheel. After running the license plate, the investigating agency made contact with our client's uncle, the registered owner of the vehicle. Eventually, they tracked down our client for an interview. Our client was charged with leaving the scene of an accident. After noticing the Officer issued a citation under the wrong Florida statute, we made a counter-offer to the State of entering a plea to a civil infraction. The State declined. The morning of trial, the State buckled and agreed to a civil infraction for a resolution.
