Case No.: 07046576TC10A, Broward County
Allegations: Leaving the Scene Of An Accident With Property Damage: my client backed his van into another van at Publix in Weston and drove away to the Home Depot across the street and went inside to shop. When he came out, Sheriff's deputies informed him that he had been in a hit-and-run in the Publix parking lot. My client had no idea he had bumped the car behind him when he backed up, but he offered to pay the victim for his damages.
Results: Not guilty. Because the only evidence presented through the bag-boy was circumstantial at best, the law prohibits the state from gaining a conviction unless it's evidence EXCLUDES all reasonable hypotheses of innocence.
