Ex-Manchester detective’s hit-and-run hearing postponed
Bedford resident Roy Drukker spoke on Tuesday, a day when Coco, his lawyer and prosecutors appeared in a Hillsborough County Superior Court-North courtroom. A hearing on the charges was cut short when Judge Gillian Abramson did not make it to court.
Prosecutors initially worked out a deal for a guilty plea to a misdemeanor charge, but that drew anger from the parents of the two teenagers struck by the Coco vehicle. Abramson evenutally rejected the plea bargain as inadequate.
Drukker, who once said he’d like to see the case go to trial, said Tuesday he’d be happy with Coco pleading guilty to felony charges. “We don’t really know what the proper penalties are. We feel confident the judge will enact a fair penalty,” he said. He said he expects Coco will deny any knowledge of hitting the two.
The accident caused serious injury to Drukker’s son, Dean Drukker, who suffered bleeding on the brain. And it caused emotional trauma to Noah Hickman, who believed his friend was dying, Drukker said.
