JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ohio -- A man charged in connection to a car accident in which his best friend was killed pled guilty to all counts Monday afternoon in court.
It happened in December. Robert Hall was driving home from a bar when he crashed. A passenger, Adam Matthews, was thrown from the vehicle. Hall then allegedly fled the scene and minutes later, along County Road 47, Matthews was hit and dragged by another vehicle.
Hall entered guilty pleas in all charges, which include a felony count in the second degree of vehicular homicide, failure to stop after an accident, and operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol.
Hall had previously pled guilty to an aggravated vehicular homicide charge.
On Monday, Hall apologized to his best friend’s family, saying there isn't a day that goes by where he doesn't think about him.
“There isn’t 10 seconds where I don’t think about you guys, don’t think about Adam,” Hall said. “I just am sorry.”
Hall was sentenced to a total of 3 years in prison, the first of two which are mandatory.
His license will also be suspended for and he will be forced to pay a $375 fine.
