Sentence Handed Down For Fatal Hit-And-Run Accident

Joseph-DildineA man who killed one person last year in a hit-and-run incident has been sentenced to over two years in prison. 

27-year-old Joseph Dildine was sentenced for the death of 19-year-old Christopher Humbert in July, 2012.  Humbert was struck near the corner of 24th Street and Avenue “C” by Dildine. 

When he was arrested, Dildine told investigators that he got behind the wheel after a night of drinking.  At the time, Dildine said he did not tell authorities about the hit and run because he thought he had hit a curb.

Dildine will receive credit for the 259 days he has already served.
