Another Dismissal

Adam Banner - Monday, February 04, 2013

Our Oklahoma criminal lawyers gained another dismissal for a satisfied client late last Friday in Oklahoma County. Our client was charged with Leaving the Scene of an Accident Resulting in Personal Injury, which is a felony in Oklahoma that carries a potential sentence of up to two (2) years incarceration in the Oklahoma Department of Corrections and a fine of up to $1,000.00.

Our client proclaimed his innocence throughout the entire representation, and unlike some other firms, we actually listened. Our attorneys were able to put evidence in front of the prosecution that showed the shortcomings of the state's case. As such, our client was able to walk out of court a free man, no plea agreement needed.

Many criminal defendants mistakenly believe that a dismissal signals the end of the ballgame. However, even when a criminal charge is dismissed, the record of the case can follow an individual forever unless properly addressed. There will still be arrest records and OSBI reports that can show up on a criminal background check.

Consequently, to get the full benefit of the dismissal we worked so hard for, he will need to hire the services of an experienced Oklahoma expungement lawyer to get rid of the record. Our attorneys are skilled in handling every phase of a criminal prosecution, and we are ready to help.
