Ok, then it appears that you are eligible for it. However, it may be wise to "play it out."
What I mean by playing it out is this: if the individual that you struck does not appear in court, the prosecutor will not be able to prove the charge against you. If the state cannot prove the charge against you, they will generally dismiss the charge. Often times in court, when the defendant is called, the judge will ask "has anyone been involved in an accident with this individual?" If the individual who was struck is not there or does not respond, the state will dismiss the case.
You should try this first as you would be able to save your PJC. Now, if the individual is there, then you would have the option of pleading guilty and asking the judge for PJC OR you can request a trial. (This type of offense is not what is called "strict liability" such as speeding. The state must show that you were unreasonable or imprudent in your driving).
So in essence, you are eligible and can request a PJC. However, you should determine if the driver that you hit is present in court that day before you plead guilty.
I hope this helped. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. If not, please remember to click ACCEPT and leave feedback so I may receive credit for my response. Thanks!
