Suspect pleads guilty to drunken driving Mario and Krlsten Scaturro, parents of Nicholas Scaturro, the boy who nearly lost his foot In the May 3 hit- and-run accident, listen to the court proceedings Friday. By LOIS O'ROURKJE Journal staff wrttar A Willits man pleaded guilty to felony drunken driving Friday in connection with a May hit-and- run accident where a 5-year-old Ukiah boy nearly lost his foot. Henry Plymire, 67, answered "guilty, sir" after Mendocino County Superior Court Judge Conrad Cox asked how he pleaded to the charge. The May 3 accident in the Wells Fargo Bank parking lot, 707 S. State St., injured Nicholas Scaturro and caused an outpouring of generosity from the Ukiah community after the boy underwent surgery at the Ralph K. Davies Medical Center in San Francisco. Nicholas suffered a fracture of his left arm and leg and nearly lost his left foot as a result of the accident. The accident occurred when Plymire backed his Cadillac Coupe de Ville into the Scaturro van, pinning Nicholas underneath the wheel of the Van. The boy, now 6, is learning to walk again after months of hospitalization and therapy, according to his parents. Appearing nervous throughout the court proceeding Friday, Plymire waived his right to a jury See GUILTY, Back Page
