Ex-Aurora teacher gets probation after hit-and-run

DENVER, KUSA - A former Aurora teacher involved in a hit-and-run that seriously injured a teenage girl will avoid jail time as part of a plea agreement. Erin Jackson, 30, pleaded guilty to a lesser charge in early August in the wreck that injured 17-year-old Deyondrah Bridgeman in February. On Friday, she was sentenced to five-years probation. Jackson pleaded guilty to attempted hit-and-run causing serious bodily injury, a class-five felony. The charge of leaving the scene of an accident involving serious bodily injury was dismissed. Deyondrah suffered a traumatic brain injury in the crash. She was struck as she crossed East Colfax Avenue on her way to East High School in Denver. She is now in a rehabilitation center learning to speak again. Video cameras recorded how Jackson's gray sedan hit the teen in the road then sped off. Jackson turned herself into police the next day.
