A Pennsylvania teacher who drunkenly drove into five teenagers as they walked and biked near a school has been sentenced to two to five years in state prison.
Victor Swaboski III apologized in court Monday for the March 2012 hit-and-run that left one teen with a fractured pelvis that required plates and screws.
Four of the victims attended the hearing and said the sentence was lenient.
The 41-year-old Swaboski pleaded guilty in October to aggravated assault by motor vehicle while driving under the influence and other offenses.
Police say Swaboski’s blood-alcohol content level was nearly three times the legal limit when he struck the teens and dragged a bicycle.
Police found him in the woods a half-mile away.
Swaboski later resigned from teaching elementary school in the Shamokin Area district.
