Misdemeanors Vs. Felony Hit-And-Run
Under California law, two types of hit and run cases exist, misdemeanor and felony cases. A misdemeanor hit and run occurs when you leave the scene of an accident in which there has been property damage caused to the other party without identifying yourself. A felony hit and run occurs when you leave the scene of an accident in which another party was injured without identifying yourself. These laws apply to every accident case regardless of who was at fault, how much damage was caused, or how little or extensive the physical injuries may have been.
If convicted of a hit and run, the penalties you may be facing include up to 3 years of informal probation, up to 6 months in a county jail, up to $1,000 in fines plus further court-assessed fees, restitution to victims for any property damage you may have caused in the accident, and 2 points on your driving record.
