Ex-Pa. prosecutor sentenced 4 to 8 months in prison
MEDIA, Pa. - December 20, 2012 (WPVI) -- A former assistant district attorney has been sentenced to four to eight months in prison for leaving a hit-and-run crash that injured a suburban Philadelphia teenager more than a year ago.
32-year-old Michael Donohue was also fined $2,000.
Back in November, jurors in Delaware County deliberated for about 4½ hours before convicting Donohue of leaving the scene of an accident, a misdemeanor because jurors said serious bodily injury hadn't resulted.
The judge earlier acquitted Donohue of more serious charges of aggravated assault and driving under the influence in the November 2011 accident that left a 14-year-old boy with a broken leg and pelvis as well as bleeding on the brain. He was hospitalized and missed three months of school.
Prosecutor Joseph McGettigan said Donohue had been out drinking with co-workers on that night. Donohue's defense attorney said that his client wasn't drunk.
