A client thought it would be fun to see how fast s/he could race through the streets of Meriden in a car, and ended up hitting a parked vehicle and then fled the scene. This was caught on a doorbell camera, and the client was charged with Evading Responsibility (14-225) and Failure to Stay in Lane (14-236).
There is a program for individuals who are in trouble with the law for the first time, called “Accelerated Rehabilitation,” or “AR.” This is a useful program for people in trouble with the law for the first time—but it wasn’t the client’s first time getting in trouble.
After a fair amount of negotiating, I convinced a State’s Attorney to drop the charges in return for the client performing some public service hours and paying a fine.
This was in 2024.
