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.
