Your son should retain a criminal defense attorney to represent him. In a situation like this, if there is a video it needs to be obtained and views and could prove he did not leave the scene of an accident or hit the other driver. Moreover, the person who the victim is bringing to testimony needs to be attacked and impeached on the witness stand to show they did not see this and are lying. If they can be done it would create a lot of doubt and make the victim look bad and could be enough for a finding of not guilty.

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.
