The Arizona Daily Star is reporting that the woman who hit a cyclists on Swan in May 2011 was sentenced to five years probation.
Abigail A. Allin struck Samuel Abate while he was riding south on Swan Road near the Rillito River Path. She then fled the scene and was arrested after a car windshield repairman noticed the damage to her car and called the police.
Allin spent 15 months in jail and pleaded guilty to several charges in February.
Abate’s father, William sent an email the Tucson Velo last month requesting cyclists write the judge asking for jail time.
Check out the story from Star reporter Veronica Cruz who was at the sentencing.
