Leaving the Scene of an Accident | Criminal Offense
As an experienced New York Criminal Defense Lawyer, I often get asked by clients about charges with leaving the scene of an accident. In New York, if you’re charged with leaving the scene of an accident, it’s a fairly serious motor vehicle offense and actually is a criminal offense. If you’re charged with an offense like that and it’s being prosecuted within the criminal court, give me a call. We’d like to discuss that case with you to see what type of impact I can have with helping you resolve the case satisfactorily.
Leaving the Scene of an Accident | Joyriding
While not necessarily related to leaving the scene of an accident, joyriding is another crime that can carry serious consequences, especially if the vehicle is stolen. As an experienced Manhattan Criminal Lawyer, I am often asked by clients about the charges with joyriding. In New York, there is no formal joyriding charge. It is a grand theft if it is the theft of an auto. It’s a felony charge. While not globally recognized as being a crime, certainly taking somebody’s car without permission is a vigorously prosecuted crime.
