HIT and RUN DISMISSED due to DISCOVERY VIOLATION – State v. Mr. R. (DMC No. 5234) (Moon Valley Justice Court TR03-00719CR): Police received a call from a semi truck driver stating that a vehicle had cut him off and struck the front of his truck with the rear of their car. He stated that the driver then took off. Several hours later Mr. R. was contacted, and he admitted to the collision. Because no injuries were involved, we were able to file a Motion based on “Corpus Delicti” stating that there could not be positive identification of Mr. R. by the semi truck driver. Due to other Discovery violations, the State moved to dismiss all charges.
