A 49-year-old woman was sent to prison today after she was convicted of charges stemming from a fatal hit and run crash.
Cathy Humphries must serve a total of eight years in prison and had her driver’s license revoked for life, according to proceedings in the Logan County Common Pleas Court.
Humphries pleaded guilty in April to aggravated vehicular homicide, failing to stop after a crash and operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
Investigators said Humphries was driving impaired Oct. 25, 2012 when she struck and killed 15-year-old Autin Houser.
The teen’s body was found three days after the crash and investigators were able to link debris at the scene to Humphries vehicle.
Austin’s mother Ellena Houser asked the judge to deliver the maximum sentence possible.
