The parents of an 18-year-old boy struck and killed last summer in the Hamptons were stunned to hear a judge sentence the driver responsible to serve only six months of community service.
Daniel Campbell left court on Friday without comment after the 20-year-old pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of a crash last August.
Campbell's vehicle had struck and killed Devesh Samtani, as the 18-year-old was walking from a house party while on vacation in Amagansett.
In court on Friday, Campbell admitted he never stopped to try and help Samtani.

"Please explain why I can't get my son back and the boy who killed my son can go scot-free," his mother, Mala Samtani, asked outside the Suffolk County court.
The judge provided no reason in court why his sentence would include no jail time, and no further comment was offered by a court spokesperson. »
