Hudson Valley Woman Sentenced For Fatal Hit-And-Run
GOSHEN, N.Y. (AP) — A 31-year-old Hudson Valley woman has been sentenced to prison for a drunk-driving, hit-and-run fatal crash.
The Middletown Times Herald-Record reports that Linda Ibrahim, of Cornwall, was sentenced Wednesday in Orange County Court to two to six years in prison for the crash that killed Eric Geter Sr. of Newburgh.
Ibrahim pleaded guilty in August to second-degree vehicular manslaughter. Authorities say she struck Geter just before dawn in January 2014 as he was walking along a street in New Windsor on his way to work. The impact threw him over a guardrail and into a creek and she left the scene.
Searchers found the body hours later, under water.
Ibrahim told the court she was remorseful and that she hopes her plea brings comfort to the victim's family.
