NORWALK, Conn. (AP) — A teenager who struck and killed a jogger in Norwalk earlier this year while driving and using her cell phone is expected to be sentenced to probation.
Seventeen-year-old Brianna McEwan is scheduled to be sentenced Friday in Norwalk Superior Court. The hearing will be closed to the public under the state's youthful offender program for first-time offenders ages 16 and 17.
Police said McEwan was viewing the New Canaan High School website on her phone in March when her SUV struck 44-year-old Kenneth Dorsey, who was jogging along New Canaan Avenue.
State prosecutor Suzanne Vieux told a judge Monday that the state and victim's family had agreed to a suspended prison sentence for McEwan under the youthful offender program, which results in the case being sealed from public view.
