John Pappias, the Northport man who pleaded guilty to a felony hit and run charge in October, was sentenced to 2 to 6 years in prison Wednesday morning, according to Newsday.
Pappias was arrested on Jan. 14 after police linked his Chevy Tahoe pickup truck to debris at the scene of a Oct. 28, 2011 hit and run on Fort Salonga Road that killed construction worker Victor Schultz of Massapequa Park.

It was not the first time Pappias had struck a pedestrian. In 2010, a 15-year-old boy was critically injured in Bay Shore after he darted out on his bicycle in front of Pappias' 2008 Honda, though no criminal charges were filed.
Pappias faces two other charges in Suffolk 10th District Court related to a separate incident on Aug. 31 when he was allegedly found intoxicated in his car while parked on Main Street in Northport.
He faces one misdemeanor charge of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated and one infraction of drinking alcohol in a motor vehicle on a highway. He is due back in court on those charges on Dec. 10.
