DUI and leaving the scene of an injury accident
DUI leaving the scene of an injury accident Lake County - Case Dismissed
People v. SS – A career military client (over a decade in service) got a dismissal of the very best kind. He stood accused of DUI and leaving the scene of an injury accident. He stood firm in his defense that he wasn't the driver. The prosecution couldn't show he was, especially after it was proven in Court that his arrest was illegal. The police had jumped the gun and assumed that because he was the registered owner of the vehicle, he was the driver. This was after he called in the accident at the nearest available phone. He did leave the scene - to go get help. Case dismissed. Career saved.
