DISMISSED | Criminal Damage, State v. Mr. C. (DMC No. 7293) (San Marcos Justice Court No. 2010-106832): Mr. C. was observed travelling the wrong way on the loop 202 Freeway. He eventually struck a sign which became detached from the ground and struck several other vehicles. He was originally charged with a DUI in City Court, but then his charge for Criminal Damage for striking the sign was filed in a Justice Court. We were able to show the Prosecutor that this was a not a true Criminal Damage, as it did not involve the requisite “intent” element necessary for the charge. We were able to have the charge of Criminal Damage Dismissed in its entirety.
