ABILENE, Texas — An Abilene woman involved in a deadly hit-and-run is scheduled to be sentenced Friday.
Teresa Ann Dominy, 65, pleaded guilty in October to accident involving death for killing 55-year-old Robin Caldwell with her SUV.
After speaking with the Taylor County District Attorney's Office on Tuesday, Caldwell's ex-husband Glen was under the impression that the state would recommend probation.
"She was hit, dragged over 100 feet, and nobody cares," Caldwell said.
But District Attorney Jim Hicks told KTXS on Wednesday night that he believes Caldwell misunderstood that conversation.
Hicks said his office typically calls a victim or their family to explain the possible outcomes of the sentencing phase, which in this case could include probation.
However, Hicks was emphatic that no plea agreement was in place in regards to the punishment, and that his office would recommend Dominy serve prison time.
"A death was involved. We don't take that lightly," Hicks said. "We will seek justice for the family."
In July 2017, Dominy struck and killed Caldwell while she was walking along the I-20 service road near Hwy 351.
According to court documents, Dominy continued driving and did not report what had occurred. She eventually reported the accident, telling police that she had "hit something."
Dominy stated that she noticed her windshield was smashed on the passenger side.
She mentioned that she should have gone back to the scene and called for help, but she did not.
Dominy's Ford Escape was later found abandoned in Potosi with damage to the windshield.
"She hit Robin thinking nothing. Nothing," Caldwell said.
The sentencing hearing is set for Friday at 1:30 p.m. in Judge Thomas Wheeler's courtroom at the Taylor County Courthouse.
