Ask a Lawyer

Question

Country: United States of America
State: New York

I'm being accused of leaving a scene of an accident which I wasn't involved in. Detectives came by and asked if I was in the area because a witness noticed my plate after the incident accrued. What are my options and how should I proceed?

Answer

Normally they should drop it if there is no other evidence against you
