By FindLaw Staff on January 26, 2010 7:58 AM

In a prosecution of defendant for DUI related offenses, judgment of the trial court is reversed in part, affirmed in part and remanded where: 1) the trial court did not err in substituting two misdemeanor charges for two felony charges for which there was insubstantial evidence; but 2) defendant's conviction for leaving the scene of an injury accident pursuant to section 20001 is reversed as no substantial evidence supports the conviction.
