Case #: CTX-0062XXXX NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The Defendant was involved in a two car accident as a result of running a stop sign. The Defendant was uninjured but one of the passengers in the other vehicle was injured. The Defendant left the scene of the accident to retrieve his wallet. While the Defendant was gone, a police officer arrived to investigate the traffic crash. Because the Defendant had left the scene and one of the passengers was injured, the officer charged the Defendant with leaving the scene of an accident with injury to another, a third degree felony. Result: Due to an inconsistency with the ticket, the Defendant was not arraigned for over 197 days after he was charged. The firm filed a motion for discharge, which was granted.
