The Washoe County District Attorney's Office says a Fernley man faces up to 20 years in prison after being found guilty last week in a hit & run crash case.

Prosecutors say 53-year-old Robert Totman was found guilty on one count of leaving the scene of a crash that happened on Spice Island Drive in June 2017.

Authorities say he made a u-tun in front of a motorcyclist who suffered injuries that resulted in the amputation of his left leg below the knee. 

When officers found Totman, they say he had a blood alcohol level of .280. Prosecutors say Totman pleaded guilty to that felony DUI charge, which was his third DUI offense in seven years. 

Sentencing is set for August 6th.
