A South Valley man walks free after pleading no contest to a hit and run that killed a toddler.

Back on Easter, Eduardo Morales was driving along Road 80 south of Pixley when he struck a 23-month-old named Daniel. He did not stop and ended up turning himself in to authorities several days later.

A Tulare County judge sentenced him to a year on probation. He also sentenced him to six years in state prison but suspended that sentence. If Morales violates his probation he will serve the prison term.

In the video, Action News reporter Jessica Peres has complete coverage on the story.
