State v. R.M.

Nathan Hitchcock Case Results: State v. R.M.

Client was accused of instigating a felony high speed chase with police and successfully escaping, only to be caught a few minutes later on a different road. Client was also accused of resisting arrest and operating under the influence of alcohol, as well as refusing to submit to the breath test, which was another serious aggravator in his case.

They were facing a felony sentence of up to 5 years in prison with a four-day jail sentence as a minimum for refusing to take a breath test, a $5,000.00 fine, 2 years of probation, and a 14-month minimum license suspension for all three offenses.  Additionally, if convicted, the client would be forever classified as a felon.

Through meticulous review and persistent requests for discovery, Attorney Hitchcock noticed that the police not only violated his client’s right of due process, but lied about it in their reports, only discovering the lie by reviewing video evidence. Rather than admitting to the falsehood, law enforcement doubled down on the lie and tried to create a whole new series of events not previously disclosed.


Due to his persistence for his client, he got the district attorney’s office to agree to dismiss the felony completely as well as resisting arrest, and the client pled guilty to operating under the influence for no jail.

Attorney Hitchcock also won the hearing at the Bureau of Motor Vehicles, saving him from an additional 275 days of license suspension.
