NOT GUILTY/COMPLETE ACQUITTAL at BENCH TRIAL | HIT and RUN – State v. Mr. H. (DMC No. 5517) (Mesa City Court 2005-016635): Mr. H. was accused of a hit and run for backing out of a parking space and striking another vehicle. A witness said the Mr. H. looked outside of his car, then got back in and drove away. When Mr. H. was contacted, he claimed that he didn’t realize he had hit another vehicle. At trial, we were able to convince the Judge that the collision was so minor, and that Mr. H. was looking in the wrong spot, that the State could not meet its burden of proof. Mr. H. was found not guilty of all charges.
