A highly publicized hit-and-run case involving the death of a federal judge’s son reached a resolution earlier today.
Marguerite Dao Vuong and her husband, Michael, pleaded no contest to the charges offered against them.
Marguerite Dao Vuong was accused of hitting David Pregerson, the 23-year-old son of U.S. District Court Judge Dean Pregerson, in the early hours of December 27, 2013 and driving away. David died four days after the incident.
Michael Voung purportedly told police he had been driving the car, not his wife.
Ms. Voung pleaded no contest to the hit-and-run charge. She was sentenced to three years in prison. Mr. Voung pleaded no contest to being an accessory after the fact. He was sentenced to one year in county jail and three years’ probation.
