Type: State Jail Felony

Facts: Client was driving on a rural highway when an officer activated his lights. Client kept driving for approximately 10 miles until she found a lighted area to pull over. The officer filed charges for evading detention with a vehicle. We convinced the prosecutor to dismiss the charges, because these days, it is not unreasonable for a woman to keep driving — even for 10 miles — until she finds a place she feels safe pulling over.

Result: Dismissed
