CLAYTON, MO. (AP) - A former Missouri legislator has been sentenced to five years of probation for leaving the scene of an accident after hitting a pedestrian on New Year’s Day 2008.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that former Rep. Brad Robinson also was ordered Thursday to pay out-of-pocket expenses for the victim, Donald Marler of Desloge. He was injured in Bonne Terre (bahn ter), about 60 miles south of St. Louis.

A high school’s surveillance camera captured Robinson and his wife switching places in a pickup truck before returning to the scene of the accident. Robinson was convicted last month.

The 42-year-old Bonne Terre Democrat did not seek re-election last year.
