No prison time for Norwalk woman who hit and killed a pedestrian

A Norwalk woman who hit and killed a pedestrian in Stamford almost two years ago is not getting prison time.



An attorney for Natalie Gainer says his client has been allowed into a program for first-time offenders after the accident that killed Janice Pielert in 2014.



A jury could not reach a verdict in the case in April, and Gainer still faces a reckless driving charge.



If she completes the program, her attorney says the charge could be cleared from her record.
