Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
The laws are the same in Kenner and Orleans and Jefferson and all around the state as far as what constitutes a hit and run. However, what is different is that fines differ from city to city and parish to parish. If you were charged with RS14:100 or the Kenner ordinance this is a misdemeanor
criminal offense so you need to get yourself an attorney locally and seek to get the DA to work out some deal with you such as a lowering of the charge to failure to report an accident or to agree to let you pay the fine in exchange for him dismissing the citation
. The attorney will negotiate these things with the DA and obtain the information on the owner of the other vehicle and make sure you can settle with them, since if they do not show up in court or do not agree to prosecute this is another reason it can get dismissed.
