MILWAUKEE — A 19-year-old Milwaukee man will spend nearly 10 months in prison for a hit-and-run crash that injured two police officers last year.

WTMJ-TV reports that Ladonesty Fowlkes admitted to crashing into a van, which struck two officers on the sidewalk. He apologized before his sentencing Monday and asked a judge to spare him from jail time.

But Judge Michelle Ackerman-Havas told the teen he should've stayed at the scene of the accident and that if he had, Fowlkes "might not be in court."
