Milwaukee, WI – On Monday, Victor Santiago, 50, was sentenced to 13 years in prison for the hit-and-run death of Alfred De la O. Silveira, 63, in late November of 2014. Santiago will serve 8 years in prison and 5 years supervision, according to court records.
Santiago struck Silveira while crossing the 900 block of S. César E. Chavez Drive in November.
Santiago failed to stop and he was later taken into custody after police located his vehicle. A small bag with 0.23 grams of cocaine was found in his possession, according to the criminal complaint.
Santiago’s blood-alcohol concentration was .187, more than twice the legal limit.
