Friday, January 04, 2013

Friday is sentencing day in a deadly hit and run that happened on Long Island more than a year ago.

Preston Mimms, of Mastic, is expected to receive up to four years in prison as part of a plea deal.

In December, Mimms admitted he hit 24-year-old mother Erika Hughes with his employer's laundry truck as she walked on Mastic Road in July of 2011.

Hughes' family is expected to attend the sentencing.
