Man Ordered to Pay Nearly $500,000 in Guide Dog Hit-and-Run

Posted December 8, 2007

— A jury ordered a man involved in the death of a guide dog to pay nearly $500,000 in damages Friday.

Last year, Stephen Coffee pleaded guilty to DWI and felony hit-and-run for a crash involving Aofie Iredale and her dog in 2005. Iredale survived, but her dog died.

Coffee argued another man drove him home that night.
