Our client was under the age of 21 when she was involved in a hit and run collision with a BAC of 0.20%. The District Attorney did not file a complaint before the date the Client had promised to appear in court. After the District Attorney filed a late complaint a warrant was issued for the Client’s arrest; however, the Client was never notified of the complaint or warrant. A year later, she went to DMV to reinstate her license and was informed about the warrant.
How we won:
We filed a motion for violation of the Client’s constitutional right to a speedy trial. The court agreed her right had been violated and dismissed the case.
