State v. L.H., September, 2015
Charges: Failing to drive with due care, Hit and run, and No proof of insurance (all misdemeanors)
Resolution: Stay of adjudication to a petty misdemeanor failing to drive with due care. The stay period is only 6-months - compared to the typical one-year - and the client needed to pay restitution and surcharges. There were no additional prosecution costs. And the only remaining condition was no same or similar offenses, which is more narrow than the typical no moving violations condition. With the client being a commercial driver, getting a resolution that did not result in a conviction is a significant victory.
