They get to hit and keep on running:
District Court Judge Frederick Gannett accepted the plea bargain in the hit-and-run case against prominent Denver wealth manager Marty Erzinger Thursday, sentencing him to one year of probation and 90 days in jail for running down cyclist Dr. Steven Milo with his Mercedes and then leaving the scene last July.
Haddon (the victim’s attorney–ed.) argued that the deal, which included two misdemeanor charges and no felony charges, wasn’t appropriate.
“I submit that in these kinds of instances, prosecutors can, should and do require felony pleas,” Haddon said.
