A judge in Hackensack on Friday allowed Rafael Ramos, 48, to keep his job during the day while serving 364 consecutive nights in the Bergen County Jail as his plea-bargained sentence for the hit-and-run death of Edward Rao.
Ramos was charged with leaving the scene of a fatal accident after running over and killing Rao, a 54-year-old former Ridgewood real estate agent, on West Ridgewood Avenue near the village train station.
Rao apparently had been heavily intoxicated when he fell into the street on West Ridgewood Avenue, near the intersection of Library Place, in late September 2018, authorities said.
