A judge has sentenced a southeastern Ohio man to three years in prison after a 2011 hit-skip accident in which a pregnant woman was injured.
He was sentenced Thursday by Athens County Common Pleas Judge L. Alan Goldsberry. Besides the prison term, Richards will be subject to a 5-year license suspension when he's released.
Richards has 15 days to appeal.
Prosecutor Keller Blackburn said the charges stemmed from a crash on June 4, 2011, along State Route 329. The driver of the other vehicle, who was injured, was a woman who was six months pregnant.
