New Court Details On Kristen Grindley's Ex-Boyfriend

COLFAX, Wash. -  A man accused of hitting his ex-girlfriend on a rural Whitman County road in his truck and leaving her for dead appeared in court on Friday. Richard Pasma entered an Alford Plea. In an Alford Plea the criminal defendant does not admit the act but admits that the prosecution could likely prove the charge. The court will pronounce the defendant guilty.

Court documents outline inconsistencies in the way her ex-boyfriend, Richard Pasma, described the events of that night. Authorities say he told investigators one story and friends a different story.

Grindley and Pasma had an argument the night of her injury, according to documents. Pasma told investigators he left the home and went four wheeling in the mud at approximately 1:30 in the morning.

Grindley's friend said Pasma worried aloud several times about that Grindley fell out of his truck and was injured. Authorities say he never told them he was concerned about the possibility or even thought this could happen.

Pasma told investigators he last saw Grindley in the doorway of their home as he drove away.

Prosecutors also filed papers outlining a plan to seek an "exceptional sentence" if Pasma is convicted. The prosecutor claims Grindley's injuries were so severe the defendant should be sentenced to 5 years in prison. Standard sentencing guidelines for hit and run call for 3-9 months of jail time.

Grindley has left the hospital and returned home to Western Washington where she continues to undergo physical therapy and speech therapy.
