DERBY, Conn. (AP) - The mother of a convenience store clerk who was injured while trying to stop the theft of some signs featuring actor David Hasselhoff wants the man who stole those signs in prison.

Cindy Crowley tells WTNH-TV (http://bit.ly/1kLZ6zK) that her son suffered a severe brain injury last August.

Jason Crowley was dragged by a pickup truck while trying to stop the driver from leaving the Cumberland Farms store in Shelton with advertising signs of Hasselhoff promoting the chain’s iced coffee.

Adam Holter of Milford is charged with assault and reckless endangerment in the theft. A scheduled court appearance on Wednesday was postponed amid plea negotiations.

Crowley says she is upset with prosecutors who told her that the 19-year-old Holter may not have to serve prison time.
