The Cincinnati Enquirer

HAMILTON - A 17-year-old driver who was speeding when he lost control of his car and struck a man on a sidewalk was sentenced Friday to spend at least six months in state detention.

The Hamilton youth, who pleaded guilty to felony aggravated vehicular assault, also is banned from having a driver's license until age 21, officials at the Butler County Prosecutor's Office said.

Authorities said the teen's Ford Mustang struck Michael Tincher Sr., of Hamilton, July 3 after hitting a railroad track at a high rate of speed.

Mr. Tincher is recovering at a hospital, prosecutors said.
