CINCINNATI -- The fatal crash case involving an Ohio appeals judge will be sent to a special prosecutor once police are done with their investigation.
The crash happened on Dec. 9 on Central Parkway between Linn and Ravine streets.
Investigators said 60-year-old Pamela Barnett was hit by Judge Patrick Dinkelacker while she was crossing the street. The crash threw the victim into the path of another vehicle.
Dinkelacker is a judge for the Ohio 1st District Appeals Court.
The Hamilton County Prosecutor's Office said once the Traffic Section finishes its report, the case will be handed over to the Ohio Attorney General’s Office for review and possible charges.
Officials said if a charge is filed, it would only be a misdemeanor.
Normally the case would be handled by the city’s prosecutor’s office but since Dinkelacker was involved, a special prosecutor will be used to stave off any possible conflict of interest.
