This office represents the legal interests of Accu-Chem Conversion, Inc., with respect to certain criminal charges filed against the company and several of its employees. The article published on July 30 in the I.V. Press regarding the disposition of the charges is factually inaccurate in several respects.
The true facts are a complaint alleging 298 traffic infractions was filed against the company and several of its drivers by the Imperial County District Attorney's Office. Later, a second complaint alleging 17 violations of the California Vehicle Code was filed against the president of the company and a supervisor. After appropriate investigation and consultation, it was decided it was in the best interests of the clients to accept the plea offer proposed by the DA's office.
On July 19, Accu-Chem and several of its employees each pleaded guilty to one count of the traffic infractions. The remaining counts were dismissed. The company was fined $50,000 and the fines against the individuals ranged from $500 to $5,000. One driver was not represented by this office.
