Leaving the scene of an accident is a serious charge in New Jersey, but in cases where there were no injuries, the penalties are less severe.
Still, you should expect to face a six month license suspension, a fine as high as $400, and up to a month in jail.
The good news is that these cases often hinge on eyewitness testimony, which can often be impeached.
If the prosecution can’t demonstrate your involvement beyond a reasonable doubt, they are unlikely to win in court.
For this reason, prosecutors will often be willing to accept deals that can save you enormous hassle and leave your record unblemished, usually with restitution as the core component.
