A friend had a previous hit and run, and was placed on probation, and now has gotten into another hit and run, being on probation and driving without a license and with out insurance, what can happen in a Case like that?
Get criminal counsel involved to minimize the effects and possible jail time. Misdemeanor hit and run carry penalties that vary. If you are convicted, you may face a fine of up to one thousand dollars ($1,000) or a sentence of up to six (6) months in jail!
Your friend seems to have difficulty learning from his mistakes. Your friend should have already retained a criminal defense attorney to discuss the consequences. If your friend has not already hired a criminal defense attorney, your friend needs to retain one immediately.
Your friend can go to jail. He or she should know much better. Your friend should get a criminal defense attorney immediately.
