A Cooper County judge sentenced a Bunceton man to probation for hitting a child with a vehicle in 2021.
Judge Robert L. Koffman sentenced Treyvon Korte at a hearing on Monday to four years in the Missouri Department of Corrections for leaving the scene of an accident that resulted in physical injury. Judge Koffman suspended the execution of the sentence and placed Korte on five years of supervised probation.
Police officers arrested Korte after he hit the child with his vehicle in the 400 block of E. Ashley Road in Boonville around 7:35 a.m. on May 12, 2021. The child wasn't seriously hurt in the crash.
Korte drove away without checking on the victim, according to court documents.
