DearCustomer- You will need to plead "not guilty" and I really advise hiring a lawyer for representation. A hit and run or leaving the scene is indeed a serious charge and can have grave implications on both your license and your insurance. Usually charges of this type can be pled down to some lesser charge assuming there was no bodily injury or aggravating circumstances.

 

In order to get the issue before the court you must plead "not guilty". Then the court will set the matter for a pre trial and trial. At the pre trial you can try to bargain the charge down but it is far easier with an attorney.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
