The trial for an illegal alien charged in a fatal hit-and-run of a 14-year-old, is set to start Nov. 29th 2018.
According to reports, Miguel Ibarra-Cerda “is charged with reckless driving causing death and failure to stop at the scene of an accident when at fault resulting in death in the collision which killed Justin Lee, 14.”
On June 11th 2018, 14-year-old Justin Lee gave his mother one last kiss on the head, before leaving their home to return a friends bicycle. On Justin’s way to return the bicycle, he was hit by a speeding minivan that was going the wrong way in the road. After hitting Justin, the driver, Miguel Ibarra-Cerda, left the scene.
Authorities believe Ibarra-Cerda was headed back to Mexico. But he was arrested before he could do so.
Ibarra-Cerda faces up to 15 years in prison for each charge.
