EASTON, Pa. - Wilson Kneebone, a Martins Creek man whose vehicle crtically injured a Lafayette College freshman after her rowing team practice, pleaded guilty to some of the charges against him in Northampton County Court Friday.
Other charges were dropped in the negotiated plea.
Kneebone has pleaded guilty to aggravated assault by vehicle and driving with a suspended license.
His sentencing is scheduled for 9 a.m. Sept. 26.
Charges withdrawn in the negotiated plea include being in an accident involving personal injury and being in such an accident when not properly licensed.
About 6 p.m. on Nov. 8, Kneebone's Jeep hit Aubrey Baumbach on Lehigh Street in Easton as she was walking to a car after college rowing practice on the Lehigh River.
Kneebone did not stop.
He resides in the Martins Creek section of Lower Mount Bethel Township, Northampton County.
The student's parents, Robert and Lisa Baumbach of Sudbury, Mass., have sued the college and two of its rowing coaches because of the accident.
