Hit-And-Run Driver Who Killed Cargill Hedge Fund Manager Gets Year In Prison

Mar 15 2011 | 2:47am ET

The woman who ran over and killed a Cargill Inc. hedge fund manager last year will spend a year in prison.

A judge in Minnesota sentenced Taylor Hohmann to five years for criminal vehicular homicide in the death of Michael Rymer. But if she stays out of legal trouble, the 20-year-old will have four of the five years stayed.

Hohmann struck and killed Rymer, who was lying in the middle of a Crystal, Minn., street when he was struck last March 19 at about 1:40 a.m. after a night out with friends. The father of three was reportedly attempting to get up when Hohmann hit him; she did not stop but was tracked down the following day.

The charges against Hohmann, filed in June, specify that she though she had hit a bump on Broadway. Hohmann was driving her boyfriend home from a bar.

Hohmann began serving her sentence on Friday.
