"
I have got myself a lawyer, I dunno how the case is going, cause the 2nd court date is on November 17, hopefully he will try to go for a dismiss or work something out, but in situations like this where you need your License to get to work, can they spare you ? by doing volunteer work, paying fines and so on? or have a restricted time on my license to goto work and school. I explained to him why I left the scene and it was due to me personally beind stressed out from quiting my job/looking for new work, reapply to goto school for mba degree, and when the accident occured I asked the lady was she alright she said YAH WTF in tone that kinda got me nervous cause the cop probably be on her side and give me a hard time cause im young(23) and driving a nice car, give him a reason to mess with me .
Lawyer said as long as i didn't leave for the bad reasons such as DUI,DRUGS or something bad i shouldn;t worry, but i cant stop thinking about it I dont want to loose my license
