ST. AUGUSTINE – This afternoon, Henry Haigler was sentenced to eight years in a state prison facility for leaving the scene of a crash with death, a first-degree felony. Upon release, he will serve seven years of probation and his driver’s license will be suspended for ten years. Circuit Judge Howard M. Maltz rendered the sentence.
On June 15, 2019, Haigler was traveling on Race Track Road when he struck and killed two bicyclists. He immediately fled the scene. Law enforcement was able to link debris at the scene to his car. Four days later, Haigler turned himself in to police. On January 7, 2020 Haigler pleaded guilty to the charge at a pretrial hearing.
