Can I get a hit and run violation dismissed if I gave all my info to the other party?

I hit a car in a parking lot in the morning. I parked and went to work. It was dark and I could not know which car I hit. After 2-3 hours I came back to see which car was damaged to put my info on but I could not find any car, but the person found me and I gave all my info but the cop gave me a hit and run violation. Can I dismiss it? I do not have any records except one speeding ticket. I am scared; I have not been in court before.

    Hit and Run is a crime of moral turpitude, and if convicted you can kiss your career aspirations goodbye. Hire a lawyer before you get duped into a plea you will regret for life.

    If the incident resulted in only property damage not exceeding a certain amount, you are not criminally liable if you remained at the scene and exchanged all relevant information.

    You should contact an attorney in your area to assist you. Without knowing where this occurred or who is prosecuting it is hard to give any further info.
