Columbus, Ga- A 2015 hit-and-run incident that left a teenage CSU student wheelchair-bound with severe brain injuries appears to have come to a close. 

William Tarver plead guilty in superior court on Monday to at least 5 charges, including reckless driving and leaving the scene of the accident. The charges stem from the July 3, 2015 hit-and-run that left Asia Hoskins, a promising young student, unable to speak or walk. 

News 3’s Darian Aaron spoke with the mother of the victim following Monday’s hearing. 

Valerie Ghant, the mother of Hoskins, tells News 3 that she is “disappointed but not shocked” by William Tarver’s guilty plea. Ghant says she is left to wonder where is the justice for her daughter and a man with an extensive criminal history that altered her child’s life forever. 

 “If they gave him twenty, it won’t change how it impacted Asia,” says Ghant ” But for the charges and the severity…where is her second chance? Plus, he’s shown a history of this. If it was someone who was a first-time offender, maybe I could see that. But the history and the severity…I don’t understand  that. I don’t feel that was justice.”

Now that Tarver has entered a guilty plea, he has been sentenced to 10 years in prison and 30 years probation.
