A former cheerleading coach who hit and killed a 15-year-old Boynton Beach boy in 2014 was sentenced in court Friday.

Amanda Dahl, 23, was given a 364-day jail sentence, 10 years probation and will lose her driver's license privileges for 10 years.

"It is almost certain that the defendant did not intend to hurt another human being that night, said Judge Samantha Schober Feuer.

She pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of a fatal wreck that hit and killed 15-year-old Khiar Raymond on Dec. 20, 2014 on High Ridge Road.

Last month, the judge heard testimony from both sides regarding the length of the sentence.

Also, as part of her sentence, Dahl must perform 500 hours of community service, including speaking at engagements with a non-profit organization about traffic safety.

She must also hold speaking engagements for the next 10 years on the date of the crash.

Finally, for the next 10 years on Dec. 20, she must post a video on social media saying she struck Khiar Raymond and left him to die.

Dahl received 42 days credit served.

Khiar's family had this to say after the sentencing.

"There's a crime committed that night," said Stephanie McKoy. "And the fact that she came back to the scene of the crime and then left again and then attributes all of that to the fact that she was hysterical, that's beyond belief. I have no words for it."
