One of the most serious traffic offenses a person can be charged with is fleeing and eluding a police officer.
Most courts take this charge very seriously. By fleeing and eluding, a driver has put the safety of the officers and others drivers in danger. Currently, if convicted of the crime, a person could receive up to 1 year in jail and possibly 12 points.
However, just like any crime the state must prove the defendant (driver) guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Therefore, an experience traffic lawyer will review the facts of the case to establish a defense if possible.
It is always a good idea to consult an experience lawyer if you are charged.
