Dinwiddie County Felony Hit and Run DROPPED DUI REDUCED
Our Dinwiddie County DUI Lawyers represented a client who was involved in a serious accident on Interstate 85. The accident was investigated by the Virginia State Police. Eventually, the Commonwealth Attorney directly indicted our client for felony hit and run and DUI with a blood alcohol content of 0.20. There were serious issues with the prosecution’s case regarding whether our client “left the scene” of the accident and whether the blood evidence was reliable. Our lawyers prepared various arguments and defenses and were able to successfully resolve the case. Ultimately, we were able to convince the prosecuting attorney to drop or nolle prosequi the felony and to reduce the DUI allegation to reckless driving. Our client was happy to avoid a felony and a jail sentence.
