Attorney gets jail time, probation for deadly Dublin hit-and-run

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, September 30, 2015

A San Francisco labor attorney will serve at least 30 days in jail for killing a Chinese tourist in a hit-and-run accident in Dublin in 2012, an Alameda County judge ordered Friday.

Judge Michael Gaffey sentenced Spencer Freeman Smith, 34, to five years felony probation and a year in county jail but noted that Smith could apply to serve out his jail sentence via electronic home detention after spending 30 days at Santa Rita Jail in Dublin.

Smith was living in San Ramon and working at a San Francisco law firm when he fatally hit Chinese financial adviser Bo Hu on Dougherty Road late on March 12, 2012.

Authorities believe Hu, 57, died instantly after bouncing off of the hood and windshield of Smith's 2012 Mercedes-Benz sedan.

Smith did not apply his brakes after the impact and drove away from the scene, only to be confronted by Dublin police the following day.
