Conshohocken woman who struck and killed pedestrian sentenced to prison

Jennifer Ann Parker, 45 years old of Conshohocken (Plymouth Township), was sentenced on April 22nd to 3½ to 10 years in a state correction facility following a trial for the February 17, 2023 death of 48 year old Anthony Jonello of Conshohocken. Parker was found to have been driving a vehicle that struck and killed Jonello who who was crossing Butler Pike in Conshohocken (Whitemarsh Township). Parker fled the scene and once in custody was found to have marijuana in her system.

From The Times Herald:

“You hit him and drove away. There were so many points that evening where you could have done the right thing,” Judge Risa Vetri Ferman addressed Parker, explaining Parker didn’t stop to render aid to Jonello and didn’t call 911 for help. “So many opportunities to do the right thing.”

The sentence included the three-year mandatory term allowable under state law for a hit-and-run that involves death. The judge added an additional six months to the minimum sentence, citing the egregiousness of Parker’s deceptive behavior when confronted by police after the incident.
