A Hennepin County judge has ordered the man sentenced for a fatal hit in run near the University of Minnesota campus to pay more than $138,000 to one of his victims. Peter Riley, the attorney for victim Sarah Bagley, says Judge Phillip Bush ordered Timothy Bakdash Wednesday to pay money to Bagley for medical expenses and pain and suffering compensation. Bagley, along with her friends Ben Van Handel and Katelynn Hanson, were on foot when they were struck by Bakdash, who was driving his car the wrong way on 5th Street Southeast in Dinkytown on April 15, 2011.
A wrong-way drunk driver who hit three people in Dinkytown was sentenced to 40 years in prison on Monday.
Lawyers made their opening statements Monday morning in the Timothy Bakdash case — the trial of a deadly hit and run that happened in Dinkytown.
