AMHERST, N.Y. (WIVB) - In about a week, Dr. James Corasanti will be a free man.
His release date from the county jail in Alden is Sunday, April 14. However, he could be released two days earlier on Friday because inmates are not released on weekends.
Corasanti was charged in the 2011 hit-and-run death of Amherst teenager Alexandria Rice. After a high profile trial, a jury convicted him on one misdemeanor county of DWI, causing a community uproar.
Since then, state lawmakers have passed Alix's Law, which closes a loophole regarding hit-and-run accidents.
Corasanti has served several months for his misdemeanor DWI conviction.
