ORANGE COUNTY DUI HIT & RUN CHARGES
If only the law were as easy as the cartoon. Being charged with hit and run, or CVC 20002, is a crime with far reaching consequences as it can be considered a crime of moral turpitude in background checks.
The law requires a person to exchange information with a party or property whom he/she "hit". If the person fails to do so that person essentially chose to "run"; thus constituting "hit and run". If this same person were also DUI, there will likely be "DUI Hit & Run charges". DUI Hit & Run charges typically face harsher penalties or punishment on top of those that one would have seen if it were just a hit & run charge or just a DUI charge separately as opposed to DUI Hit & Run charges. The combination of the two charges is what make one's exposure that much greater when facing DUI Hit & Run charges.
