Leaving The Scene Of An Accident

Misdemeanor convictions carry fines of up to $1,000 and sentences of up to one year in jail. If another person is seriously injured or killed in a hit-and-run accident, you will be charged with a felony. If convicted, you could be sentenced to up to five years in prison.
