A 27-year-old woman admitted Thursday, Jan. 6, 2022, that she was intoxicated when she struck and killed a man walking along Stump Road in Plumstead Township and then fled the scene.
Charlotte Mary Kleckner, of Doylestown, appeared before Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey L. Finley and pleaded guilty to accidents involving death or personal injury and drunk driving for killing Delfino Colop-Alvarado in the Aug. 27, 2021, crash.
She was sentenced to three to 10 years in state prison on the first charge and a concurrent sentence of 72 hours to six months on the second charge.
Before handing down the sentence, Finley heard victim impact statements from several people who knew Colop-Alvarado, including the owner of a Plumstead farm where he lived and worked as a groundskeeper for the past 15 years. Those who knew the victim spoke of his work ethic, warm spirit, and trustworthiness.
