Case Conclusion Date: October 8, 2012
Practice Area: Criminal Defense
Outcome: Case Dismissed
Description: My client was involved in a car wreck that occurred at the intersection of a busy road and a neighborhood, when he pulled into traffic and was struck from behind. My client stated that the other car was not in sight when he pulled out, and that he must have been speeding in order to come upon him so quickly. The police officer on the scene ticketed my client anyway with a "failure to yield" citation, choosing not to listen. I was able to persuade the prosecutors, with the help of witness testimony and photographic evidence, to drop the case because the other party had clearly been speeding.
