Last week a hit and run driver fled the scene of an accident that left a grandfather dead and injured an 18-month old girl. Herb Sachs, who is representing the as-of-yet unidentified driver talked to police last week and told them the driver would turn herself in today (after the Thanksgiving holiday). Understandably, this has caused some consternation for the public who don’t understand attorney/client privilege or why she got to wait until after the holiday to turn herself in. Can some of you criminal attorneys enlighten us on the pros/cons of waiting to turn herself in (other than allowing enough time to pass a blood alcohol level test)? [8NewsNow]
