Man Jailed For Hit and Run Kill

A Paisley man has received a sentence of five years and three months after killing a 15-year-old girl in Paisley. He was also banned from driving for 11 years and seven months. This sentence was reduced for his guilty plea to the charges against him. Mr Gatti pled guilty to the charge against him. He had consumed alcohol and was on the wrong side of the road and was speeding when he hit the child. He drove away after he hit the girl leaving her to her young friends to get help. The young girl died in hospital shortly afterwards. The child’s parents told BBC about the sentence received by Mr Gatti: “I think it’s ridiculous and I don’t think it sends out a good message”… “I think it is absolutely pathetic.” The judge told Mr Gatti at sentencing that he fled in a “cowardly act.”
