The accident occurred 06/2015......took a diversion for the DUI and a ticket for left of center involving the wreck on 11/18/2015.....I had a Drivers license administrative hearing in 09/2015 and she sided with the police there was probable cause for the test, so we appealed the decision to the district court which takes place in 01/2016.....the driver is know willing to testify that he was driving at the appeal......This case is in Kansas......my questions are can he be charged for leaving the scene and if so how would that affect my diversion, because to people can't both be guilty of the same crime can they??
Traffic Lawyer: Legal-Kal, Attorney replied 2 years ago

I see. Since the matter is in Kansas, I will be opting out of the question, thereby opening it up to another expert to better assist you. Thank you and good luck!

Hello,

He would not be allowed to come forward to testify on your behalf without his having been advised by counsel who will tell him that if he admits to this under oath he can be prosecuted for the crime, face civil liability as the driver and yes, he could be charged with a hit and run. A lawyer would also tell him that he has a fundamental right against self-incrimination under the 5th Amendment to the Constitution and that he has a right not to testify against himself. Frankly, while a lawyer would support him if he wishes to testify, a lawyer would first try to talk him out of doing so.

If his evidence is completely excuplatory for you, your conviction should be overturned on appeal.
