Unlicensed driver Charles Sanford, 19, was sentenced to 5 years for killing 4-year-old Veronica Desir on April 4, 2008 according to the Miami Herald. Charles Sanford fled from the scene of the accident and was apprehended three days later, his damaged Dodge Magnum was found at a Fort Lauderdale body shop.

A five year sentence is not a just punishment for this horrendous crime. Broward Circuit Judge Bernie Bober should have sent a stronger message that hit and run accidents will no longer be tolerated by sentencing him to at least ten years.  Sanford committed murder and witnesses said Sanford sped away without hesitation.  Our condolences go out to Veronica’s family.

    It’s very sad to say, but at least they caught him. It seems like these hit and runners usually don’t get caught at all.
