Driver Pleads Guilty to Fatal Hit-and-Run


The man accused of killing a Colorado Springs teenager in a hit and run accident says he's guilty.

David Henley Jr. pleaded guilty Tuesday to leaving the scene of an accident involving a death.

The accident happened back in may. 14-year-old Ricky Figueroa was crossing the street at Airport Road and Circle Drive when a pickup truck hit and killed him.

The driver of the truck took off.

Police say that driver was Henley. He is due back in court in December to set a sentencing date.

Henley’s tentative sentence is for 36 years in prison.
