PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - A Pascagoula police officer Daniel Snyder will be sentenced June 20 after being convicted of felony fleeing an accident that resulted in the death of a 16-year-old Ocean Springs girl.

Snyder was convicted Thursday.

Jackson County Circuit Judge Dale Harkey on Friday allowed Snyder to be released on bond pending a pre-sentence investigative report.

The 44-year-old Snyder will have to wear a GPS device, have a curfew from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., surrender any passport and not drink alcohol.

Snyder was off-duty on Feb. 22, 2013 when the accident occurred.

Authorities say Katelyn Braun and a friend were walking in a street when she was hit by Snyder’s truck.

Snyder is facing a sentence of up to 20 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines.
