Arlington resident and former Tarrant County corrections officer Jeffrey Holland has been sentenced to 10 years probation and a $10,000 fine for the hit-and-run death of 28-year-old Ladrieka Waggoner.
According to police, on the night of October 14, 2012 Holland was driving along I-30 from a bar to a strip club when he hit Waggoner, who was walking along Beach Street in east Fort Worth. Holland knocked her into a guardrail and fled. She was found dead at the scene the next morning.
The jury found Holland guilty of causing an accident involving injury or death, which is considered a third-degree felony in Texas and is punishable by a maximum of 10 years in prison. As part of Holland’s probation, he must serve 120 days in a lockdown facility and was also ordered to erect a memorial at the accident site.
