From the Times Call

The 25-year-old woman accused of
hitting and killing a Boulder cyclist while driving drunk, then fleeing the scene, is headed to prison after reaching a plea deal with prosecutors on Thursday.

Callie Kuhasz, of Boulder, pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide, the most serious of the charges she faced in the hit-and-run crash that killed William Davis, 35, of Boulder, on Jay Road last June.

It was stipulated in the plea agreement that Kuhasz would be sentenced by a judge to between four and 12 years in prison, the same presumptive sentencing range she would have faced had she been convicted at trial of the vehicular homicide charge, a Class 3 felony.

In exchange for that guilty plea, prosecutors dropped the charges of leaving the scene of a crash, DUI and weaving they’d originally filed against Kuhasz, who had been set to stand trial in April.
