Tucson woman gets 20-year prison term in fatal hit-and-run

July 23, 2019

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A Tucson woman accused of driving impaired in a fatal hit-and-run crash in 2017 has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Pima County prosecutors say 32-year-old Erin Eman was sentenced Monday.

In May, Eman pleaded guilty to the second-degree murder charge and various other offenses related to the July 2017 car crash that led to the death of 21-year-old Hannah Parkhurst.

A jury also found Eman guilty of aggravated DUI, leaving the scene of an accident, criminal damage, drug possession and endangerment.

Tucson police say Eman was involved in four other hit-and-run collisions leading up to the fatal crash involving Parkhurst.
