BOONEVILLE – The man who fled the scene of the accident last summer in which one Prentiss County school official was killed and two were injured was sentenced Thursday and will serve six years in prison, according to the Daily Corinthian.
Dylan G. King, 21, of Corinth, pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of an accident involving a death and was sentenced to 20 years in prison, with 14 years suspended, six years to serve, and five years of post-release supervision by Circuit Judge James Roberts. He also will pay a $1,000 fine.
King left the scene of an Aug. 22, 2012, accident that caused the death of Jason McKinney, the county school district’s curriculum coordinator and transportation director.
Also injured were Superintendent Randle Downs, who suffered a punctured lung and back injuries that kept him away from work for two months, and federal programs coordinator Luke Ledbetter, who suffered a broken leg.
McKinney’s widow, Dawn McKinney, gave a victim impact statement on behalf of herself and the couple’s three children.
King was represented by Corinth attorney Nicholas Bain.
