Henry County officers are often quick to write tickets for Hit and Run. Hit and Run offenses are very serious. When charged along with a DUI, the Hit and Run can often be more serious than the DUI in that unlike DUI, it is a crime where you consciously made a decision to flee the scene of an accident. It can lead to your license being suspended without the availability of a limited permit. It is certainly not a charge to take lightly and a lawyer should be contacted immediately.
The most serious Henry County Hit and Run cases occur when there is an accident and the driver flees the scene of the accident, leaving a hurt person behind. Often, it takes law enforcement officers some time and detective work to find the driver and this is not a favorable set of circumstances to present to the Henry Co. prosecuting attorneys. In some instances drivers are charged with Hit and Run for striking a car, lamppost, or fence and then leaving. While this charge could also fall under the category of failing in your duty to report striking a fixed object, Henry Co. officers are often quick to arrest you for Hit and Run.
