SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A Sioux City lawyer has been sentenced to 15 days in jail for a hit-and-run that injured two pedestrians and damaged a vehicle.

Television station KTIV reports (https://bit.ly/2huiwPr ) that 32-year-old Thomas Farrens was sentenced Friday after entering an Alford plea to leaving the scene of a serious injury accident.

Court documents say Farrens didn’t stop after his car hit two pedestrians and sideswiped another vehicle on April 4. His car was later found abandoned in Grandview Park. The pedestrians were taken to a hospital for treatment.

Sioux City Police say that after Farrens was found at home later that evening, his blood alcohol level tested above the legal driving limit.
