Hit and run charges can be surprisingly simple to acquire. Anyone who is

crime in the state of Indiana. It is required by law to stay at the scene
of a vehicle accident if you are involved in any way. Failing to do so
can lead to a warrant for your arrest.

fines and potentially jail time, depending on the situation. Talk to one

The severity of your punishment will depend on the circumstances of the
crash. Factors that can determine how severe your sentence needs to be
include the following:
- Any bodily harm done
- Intoxication of the driver
- Area in which the accident happened (such as a school zone)
- Prior offenses
- Possession of drugs
In most cases, a hit and run is considered a Class A misdemeanor, which
can get you up to 1 year in jail and up to $5,000 in fines. Likewise,
you could face probation, a suspended license, community service, drug
testing, mandatory employment, and any other punishment the judge deems
fair. If the hit and run involves bodily harm to other people involved
in the accident, the charge becomes a Level 6 felony, which can get you
up to 3 years in prison, $10,000 in fines, and additional similar court orders.
