Jail time at the holidays is part of the sentence for a 2019 fatal road accident in Houston County



A deadly traffic accident at Christmas-time three years ago leads to jail time for a woman from Houston County. 

This week, a judge in Caledonia withheld a prison sentence for Brittany Robb, who pled guilty to causing a hit-and-run crash in 2019 that killed 48-year-old Kerrie Hauser of Hokah. 

Robb gets five years probation, and as part of the plea agreement, she’ll have to go to jail for 10 days around Christmas each year of her probation.  She’ll also have to give speeches about distracted driving. 

Robb reportedly was texting behind the wheel on the morning of December 24th, 2019, when she struck Hauser, who was out for a daily walk. The driver allegedly thought she hit a deer, and kept going.

Houston County charged Robb with 11 criminal counts, including vehicular homicide.
