Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Good afternoon. May I safely assume that no one was hurt in this accident?
Ok, and are you charged with leaving the scene of the accident?
Ok, great--that definitely helps your situation. Do you happen to have the code section that you are accused to have violated?
I just handle the answers... I'm a person like you on the other side of this chat screen and I don't know what you've agreed to have been charged. I can only tell you that there's a complete satisfaction guarantee.
Ok, that actually is Georgia's "hit and run" statute. It is a misdemeanor. For a first time offense, jail time is technically possible (though unlikely for any given case, especially if there was no bodily injury). Nonetheless, it is serious enough that I would recommend consulting with a criminal defense attorney before your first court hearing.Let me know if further clarification is needed, and please feel free to leave a rating once you are finished (it does not cost anything extra to do so and it is the only way I may be credited for my answers.) Thank you!
