LEWISTON (AP) — A Maine man who pleaded no contest to leaving the scene after fatally striking a woman with his truck has been ordered to serve 90 days in jail.

The Sun Journal reports that Kevin Scribner was sentenced Tuesday under terms of a plea agreement in Lewiston District Court.

Police say Scribner told investigators he was texting just before the September 2015 crash that killed 21- year-old Brittany Stanhope in Turner. Authorities say the Paris woman was hit while standing alongside the road after her car suffered mechanical problems.

The judge sentenced Scribner to two years in prison but suspended all but nine months. Scribner also must serve two years of probation.
