MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A judge has sentenced an Edgerton man to eight years in prison for a hit-and-run that badly injured two girls in Middleton last year.

Thirty-one-year-old Ross Cotter-Brown told the judge he was ready to accept any penalty she gave him. He said he was “absolutely destroyed” by what he had done.

Cotter-Brown struck the girls as they crossed Century Avenue on April 21, 2016. He had been drinking and using a compound intended to mimic marijuana.

In January Cotter-Brown pleaded guilty to causing great bodily harm by driving while intoxicated, causing injury by driving while intoxicated, hit and run causing great bodily harm and two counts of hit and run causing injury.

The prosecution asked for just over 10 years in prison. The defense sought a four-year sentence.
