MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — A Berkeley County woman convicted in a December 2014 hit-and-run pedestrian death will serve between one and five years in prison.
Sarah Quaglio, 24, received that sentence Monday.
She pleaded guilty in September to one felony count of failure to stop at the scene of an accident, and entered a no-contest plea to one count of driving under the influence resulting in death stemming from the death of Chad Triesler, 26.
The judge imposed a prison sentence for Quaglio even though she had no prior criminal history, citing Erin’s Law, which requires motorists in a crash involving injury or death to stop and seek help, was passed by state lawmakers to address such circumstances.
Quaglio will be allowed to serve a one-year jail sentence imposed for the DUI-with-death conviction at the same time as the one- to-five year sentence for her felony conviction.
