Son fled the scene of the accident, but later turned herself in to authorities. She was arrested and bailed out the same day. Enos died in the hospital on July 20 as a result of the injuries he suffered in the accident.
Son was not sentenced to any jail time, in part because of her cooperation with authorities. Son ultimately pleaded no contest to felony hit and run. A vehicular manslaughter charge was dropped.
Katrina Ohde, the prosecutor in the case, said that Son's early acceptance of responsibility and willingness to plead guilty to a serious charge were "important factors" in determining her sentence.
"She was very cooperative," Ohde said, noting that the district attorney's office did not seek a state prison sentence for Son.
Son was ordered to pay $7,500 in damages to the victim's family and about $612 in various legal fees, according to Lisa McCrary, public information officer for the District Attorney's office. Son will serve two years probation and must complete 200 hours of community service. Her driver's license will be suspended for one year.
