PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A 25-year-old Portland man who pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide and related counts sobbed and apologized to the victim’s relatives as he was sentenced to four years in prison in the fatal hit and run.

The Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/8pQgp9 ) that Jay Taylor Jenkins also pleaded guilty to DUI and hit and run driving in the Feb. 15 death of a pedestrian, Douglas Miller. Jenkins was sentenced Monday.

Court documents say Jenkins and a friend had been drinking at a strip club. They texted and phoned the friend’s housemates for a ride home but the housemates apparently didn’t immediately get the messages.

The next evening, two of the friend’s housemates called Portland police to say they suspected Jenkins and the other man of hiding a damaged Subaru in a garage near the crash scene. The friend was later sentenced to 45 days for hindering prosecution.
