STATE v. T.T.
Charge: 4 Counts of Aggravated Assault (Class B felony) and 1 Count of Reckless Conduct (Class C felony)
Maximum Penalty: 45 years prison; $45,000.00 fines
Summary: Client was involved in a head-on collision with another car. Everyone in the second car was severely injured and there was talk that both drivers were playing "chicken". The state waited 2 years before indicting my client and charging him with the aforementioned crimes.
Result: State was unable to provide us with the raw data from the forensic mapping and crash reports. Without the raw data, we couldn't determine whether or not the data was compiled and interpreted correctly. We had a hearing on this issue and the court's decision was that none of the state's reports were admissible. As a result, all charges were dismissed and my client pled guilty to Driving to Endanger for a fine of $575.00 and a license suspension of 30 days.
