Swanson Sentenced

By  | 

A 42-year-old Okemos woman is sentenced on Wednesday for hitting and killing a 40-year-old pedestrian with her car.

Judge Thomas Brown ordered Susan Swanson to spend a minimum of four and a half years in prison and possibly up to 15 years for killing 40-year-old Alejandro Salinas in July last year.

Swanson was convicted in October of driving while impaired and causing death and failing to stop at the scene of a deadly accident.

Defense attorney Frank Reynolds says he will file an appeal right away. It will then be up to the court of appeals to review the case.
