Morua Pleads Guilty to DUI & Hit and Run
updated: Apr 15, 2014, 12:30 PM

By the Dedicated Staff of edhat.com

Raymond Morua pled guilty to DUI and fatal hit-and-run charges on Tuesday morning, reports The Independent. He agreed to a plea deal that will send him to prison for 20 years to life, excluding the second-degree murder charge. Morua drove under the influence and fled the scene after fatally hitting 27- year-old Mallory Rae Dies in December.

The Independent reports that Morua appeared in court wearing a dark suit and pleaded guilty to felony charges of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated [15 years to life sentence] and fleeing the scene [5 year sentence]. Morua has agreed to issue a formal apology, pay restitution, and participate in an anti-drunk driving video. His formal sentence is scheduled for May 28th.
