A driver that was convicted in a fatal hit-and-run from 2012 will spend three months in prison. The judge at the University Avenue courthouse ordered Miguel Oliveira to serve six months, but the sentence was reduced because he had been under house arrest for the past three years. In November 2012, 35-year-old school teacher Tom Samson was riding his bicycle when he was struck by Oliveira’s vehicle at Lansdowne and Davenport. Police say Samson was struck by a second vehicle. Oliveira continued on his way after the collision, and in May of last year, he pleaded guilty to failing to remain at the scene of an accident causing death. Oliveira will serve his jail sentence from 7pm on Fridays to 5am on Mondays. He will also do 240 hours of community service and is banned from driving for two years.
