SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — A Springfield man who hit and killed a boy on the side walk in September 2017 was sentenced to one year in jail.
37-year-old Lonnie Yeager was only sentenced for driving without a license.
The other charges held against Yeager were dropped.
According to the police, Yeager had a seizure when he hit five children on the side walk near Campbell Elementary which is near North Grant and Mount Vernon.
10-year-old Riddick Tudor died as a result from his injuries.
The one-year punishment was the maximum sentenced allowed by law for that charge.
