MUSKEGON, Mich. (WOOD) – A man who backed his minivan into a mother and child will spend time in jail.

Antonio Raglin pleaded no contest Wednesday to two misdemeanor counts of failure to stop at the scene of a personal-injury accident and one misdemeanor count of driving while his license was suspended. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail.

Raglin was driving a minivan that backed up into 18-year-old Aireanna Currier, who was pushing her 1-year-old son in a stroller, in June 2013 in the parking lot of Sam’s Drink All on Getty Street in Muskegon.

The stroller with the baby still inside became lodged under the minivan and was dragged several feet as Raglin started to drive away. He stopped just long enough for Currier to free her son from the stroller and then left.

Neither mother nor child were seriously hurt.

Raglin has been in jail since Sept. 22, 2013 for felony weapons and lying to police charges in connection to the shooting at the Elks Charity Lodge on Ottawa Street in Muskegon that left three people dead.

Raglin was wounded in that shooting and initially gave police a false name. He had a gun and fired it, he admitted to police, but investigators have not recovered that weapon and do not know whether Raglin actually shot anyone.

The trial for that case is scheduled for Feb. 18.
