In Chandler, a woman was recently convicted by a federal jury. Reports
indicate that she was accused of leaving the scene of a fatal
auto accident while on an Indian reservation.
According to the U.S. Attorney's Office in Phoenix, the defendant,
64-year-old Victoria Flockhart, faces criminal sentencing in November.
Evidence presented at her trial showed that on the morning of March 21,
2007, she drove her car and hit and killed a 34-year-old Native American.
The victim was trying to cross a road on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa
Reservation, which is east of Phoenix.
By law, Flockhart was required to stop after the car accident, but she
committed a crime by fleeing the scene. A federal conviction for leaving
the scene of a fatal accident carries a maximum penalty of nine years
imprisonment, a $250,000 fine or both.
