Com. v. R.R. (Summary Appeal)


7/17/12
Commonwealth v. R.R. (Summary Appeal)
Charge/Violation:

                        75 §3714 §§A – Carless Driving  - Summary

                        75 §3745 - Leaving Scene of Accident  - Summary

Disposition:
Attorney Paletta filed a Conviction Appeal for the two above referenced charges.  If found guilty on these two charges, Defendant would incur a suspension of their drivers license due to the assignment of points for these charges exceeding the number of points allowed.  In order to avoid a license suspension, a plea to an offense carrying no points or a not-guilty disposition for these two charges is necessary.  Following the conclusion of the Summary Appeal Hearing, Defendant was found Not Guilty on all charges and Defendant was no longer in jeopardy of incurring a license suspension.
