BARRE, Vt. (AP) - A driver accused of hitting a Norwich University hockey player in 2013 as she walked beside Route 12 in Northfield has received a mostly suspended sentence as part of a plea agreement.

The Times Argus reports (https://bit.ly/1DoiQF0) 24-year-old James Lott of Northfield was sentenced Tuesday to one to seven years in jail, all suspended except for 20 days. He also was placed on probation on a felony count of driving under the influence with injury resulting and ordered to complete community service. A second drunken-driving count was dropped.

Police said then-21-year-old Elizabeth Gemmiti of Toronto, Ontario, had a bloodied face and leg pain; doctors later said she suffered bleeding in her brain.

Gemmiti has since recovered and has played in 20 games for Norwich this season, racking up five assists.
