| No Comments

A St. Paul teacher was sentenced on Oct. 27 to 90 days in The Ramsey County jail after he ran over a 2-year-old girl with his car in a parking lot.

According to the Star Tribune, Hamjatta Fofana, 53, was under the influence and had a blood alcohol content of .32 percent when the police found him in his apartment nearby.

The criminal complaint stated that Fofana drove away and that "the father ran to the driver's door and pulled on the Honda's emergency brake, and the mother pulled the girl from under the car."

The Star Tribune reports that Fofana, who has been a second-language teacher at a St. Paul public school since 1993 remains on paid administrative leave, said St. Paul schools spokeswoman Toya Stewart Downey.

Fofana was charged with criminal vehicular operation and driving while intoxicated and he pleaded guilty to criminal vehicular operation, the Pioneer Press reports.
