MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire police officer has been sentenced to one year in jail for leaving the scene after he struck two teens with his unmarked police car.

Former Manchester sergeant Stephen Coco Coco had been charged with conduct after an accident. Prosecutors said he was off-duty on March 22, 2013, when he struck 18-year-old Dean Drukker and 17-year-old Noah Hickman from behind.

Coco told investigators he hadn’t left home that night, but police said his SUV had fresh front-end damage.

Drukker suffered bleeding on the brain and a separated shoulder. Hickman suffered a broken right elbow and back injuries.

WMUR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1grdazA) that Coco, who was fired after the accident, was sentenced Wednesday in Hillsborough County Superior Court.
