The Defendant was driving in Osceola County when she swerved to avoid an animal in the road. Her reaction caused her vehicle to veer off the road and strike a fence owned by the city. The collision caused extensive damage to both her vehicle and the city property. The defendant was frightened and fled the scene. A police investigation ensued and the Defendant was subsequently charged with leaving the scene of an accident with property damage. During the course of the police investigation the Defendant made several admissions to being involved in the accident. The attorney challenged the admission of the Defendant’s statements, which severely weakened the state’s case. The attorney’s actions resulted in the state dropping all criminal charges against the Defendant.
