Drag-racing Pa. cop gets 3 to 12 months in county jail in pedestrian's death

A now-fired Philadelphia police officer is going to jail for killing a man while drag racing with another officer two years ago. The Associated Press reports the former Philly cop, Adam Soto, has been ordered to serve 3 to 12 months in county jail for the death of pedestrian Daniel Dimitri, 50.

Soto was speeding near a high school when he hit the 50-year-old while drag racing Jan. 31, 2017. Soto was fired from the force shortly thereafter. And in October, he pleaded guilty to a felony charge of homicide by vehicle and a misdemeanor charge of involuntary manslaughter.

The judge in the case has ordered Soto to turn himself in on Feb. 8 to begin serving his sentence. However, Soto has been granted work release to be able to provide for his wife and 2-month-old child, meaning he can leave jail to go back and forth to work.

There was no word on his current employment.
