In the case of Marlon B., Ms. Gillis’ client was charged with a violation of Vehicle Code section 20002(a)- Hit and Run. Ms. Gillis was able to get the case dismissed without her client having to go to trial.
Marlon was facing jail time, fines and years of probation. Misdemeanor hit and run carries surprisingly steep penalties given the nature of the offense. If Ms. Gillis’ client was convicted he faced a fine of up to one thousand dollars ($1,000) and even a sentence of up to six (6) months in county jail!
If you or a family member has been charged with hit and run you need a local San Joaquin County criminal defense attorney who will fight for you.
