Hit & Run

Misd./Felony

15 Min. | Free Consultation

Even though it’s called “felony” hit and run, the crime of Vehicle Code 20001 VC hit and run is actually a wobbler. This means that the prosecutor may choose to try it as a misdemeanor or a felony4 …usually depending on the facts of the case and the defendant’s criminal history.

If felony hit and run is tried as a misdemeanor, the maximum penalties are a fine of between one thousand dollars ($1,000) and ten thousand dollars ($10,000), and/or up to one (1) year in county jail. If the accident resulted in a death or a permanent, serious injury, in most cases the defendant will need to serve at least ninety (90) days in jail.5

But if it is prosecuted as a felony, felony hit and run carries penalties of a fine of between one thousand dollars ($1,000) and ten thousand dollars ($10,000)…plus sixteen (16) months to three (3) years in state prison. If someone (other than the defendant) was killed or suffered a permanent, serious injury in the accident, the state prison sentence rises to two (2) to four (4) years.6

Great quality in customers service. I used bail once before for a family member and the experience I had with Abel was nothing like the past. He was so helpful from the moment he picked up my call to the very end. He shows sympathy and compassion. Gave me the best quote. And was fast at posting bond. Thank you Sir!
