(by Janis Mara) – A former Monterey County probation officer was sentenced Thursday to a year in jail for felony hit-and-run, according to the chief assistant district attorney.

Sonia Cano, 36, of Salinas, was placed on a grant of felony probation for a period of five years and sentenced to one year in jail, with home confinement denied, according to Berkley Brannon, chief assistant
district attorney.

Judge Andrew Liu sentenced Cano and she was immediately remanded into custody following the sentence, Brannon said.

Cano was driving southbound on North Main Street in Salinas on Dec. 10, 2017 when she struck a person and then fled, according to Brannon.

However, the victim jaywalked erratically across North Main Street, police said, and they determined Cano was not at fault for the collision, Brannon said.

    The only reason home confinement was denied because she was an officer of the law. If she had been a multiple felon she would have been sentenced to a fraction of that on home confinement.
