Press Democrat: "Sentencing in Cloverdale hit-and-run expected Wednesday"


A special prosecutor expects a 17-year-old Cloverdale driver will be sentenced as scheduled Wednesday in the hit-and-run death of an 83-year-old man that sparked controversy over the rapid settlement of the case.

However, Murat Ozgur, who is handling the proceedings for the state Attorney General's Office, said it is still unclear if the charges against Mitch Carlson will be amended to include manslaughter in the killing of pedestrian Miguel Sanchez.

“I'm investigating additional charges based on the death of Mr. Sanchez,” Ozgur said Friday.
