Former LAPD Officer Faces Prison For Injuring Two, Leaving Scene Of Accident

khts_crime_genericA former member of the LAPD’s elite Metro division faces up to six years in prison after a Norwalk jury today convicted him of leaving the scene of an accident and causing great bodily injury for a June 2008 hit-and-run accident in a Saugus parking lot.

 

Jurors deliberated 2 ½ days before finding William Skett, 36, guilty of leaving the scene of an accident that injured two people on June 21, 2008, said Deputy District Attorney Natalie Adomian. Jurors also found true a special allegation of causing great bodily injury.

But jurors hung on a charge of DUI causing injury. He was acquitted of a third felony count, driving with a .08 percent blood alcohol level.

Skett was originally charged with hitting a woman and a man as he backed his Hummer out of a Saugus parking lot. Authorities said the woman suffered multiple broken ribs and collapsed lungs while the man received minor cuts and bruises.

Sheriff’s detectives said Skett fled the scene near Bouquet Canyon and Soledad Canyon roads after he got out of his vehicle and saw the victims lying injured on the ground. The abandoned Hummer was traced to Skett, who was arrested a short time later at his home.

He faces up to six years in state prison when he returns Jan. 13 for sentencing before Judge John Torribio. LAPD’s Media Relations division confirmed that he is no longer employed by LAPD, although he was working for them when the incident occurred.
