Guilty Plea In Deadly Hit And Run
WILKES-BARRE — A man pleaded guilty Friday to hitting and killing a man on a bike last year.
Perkins pleaded to involuntary manslaughter, possession, and driving under the influence.
Perkins also pleaded guilty to separate cases of DUI and heroin possession, some of which happened after the hit and run.
“The investigation took quite some time to get through before he was arrested with that charge, so while the investigation was pending, Mr. Perkins did add up a few more cases,” said Luzerne County A.D.A. Rebecca Reimiller.
Perkins is scheduled to be sentenced in December and could get over 15 years in prison for that deadly hit and run in Luzerne County.
