Paige gets 5-month sentence

More than a year after Daniel Hopkins was killed in a hit-andrun accident, Lorna Paige was sentenced to five months in jail and banned from driving for a year.

Paige pleaded guilty in March to failing to remain at the scene of an accident, and received her sentence last week.

Hopkins, 17, was found by police lying on Boys Road, seriously injured around 5:30 a.m. on April 1, 2012.

He was taken to Victoria General Hospital, but later died of his injuries.

Paige, 24 at the time, turned herself in to police the following day, admitting to having struck him.
