A former cheerleading coach faces at least four years behind bars after pleading guilty to driving in a crash that killed a Boynton Beach teen in 2014.

Amanda Dahl charged is expected to be sentenced Monday in connection with the fatal wreck.

Police said Dahl's Mercedes Benz struck and killed Khiar Raymond, 15, near Boynton Beach High School.

NewsChannel 5 obtained court documents confirming the 23-year-old driver pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of a crash involving death.

In December 2014, Boynton Beach police shared a surveillance picture detectives said showed Dahl stopped briefly after the crash on High Ridge Road, but then drove away. She turned herself in about one month later.

Court records show she could spend between four and 30 years in prison. But under certain circumstances, a judge can give a shorter sentence. 

NewsChannel 5 reached out to Dahl's lawyer, but did not hear back.

The Raymond family said it is, “Waiting for the justice process to be completed before commenting."
