TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif. - Two people were sentenced in Tehama County following a hit-and-run investigation beginning in January.

The Tehama County District Attorney’s Office said 34-year-old Joshua Pennock was sentenced three years in state prison for accessory after the fact.

The office also said 27-year-old Kayla Hudgens was sentenced to three years formal probation, 180 days in county jail and 80 hours of community service for fleeing a pursuing peace office while driving recklessly. 

On Jan. 8, police responded to Wilcox Road for a report of a hit-and-run. Officers responding found the vehicle matching the description they were given and pursued it for several miles. 

Police said as Hudgens came up to a dead end, she drove the vehicle off the road into mud, causing the vehicle to become stuck. 

The district attorney said Pennock got out of the vehicle and attempted to push the vehicle out of the mud. 

Pennock could not get the vehicle out of the mud, so he and Hudgens took off on foot. They were later arrested after police received a call from a person who saw them walking in a nearby area. 

At the time of the arrest, Pennock had an outstanding arrest warrant out of Butte County. He was also on Post Supervised Release.

Hudgens had an arrest warrant out of Tehama County and two misdemeanor warrants from outside the county, police said.
