Ohio man to leave jail for young son’s memorial

– An Ohio man who authorities say ran over his 4-year-old son after the boy fell from a van will be allowed to leave jail to attend a memorial service for the child.

Defense attorney Scott Culbert tells The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/KjxCF8) he’ll take Natividad de Jesus Hernandez to the Thursday service and return him to jail.

The 30-year-old Columbus man is accused of driving away without talking to authorities after the accident last Thursday in Union County.

Culbert says Hernandez shouldn’t be prosecuted, pointing to video that shows police arriving to help and then leaving him there alone.

Hernandez, who is from El Salvador, is being held on $500,000 bond. Authorities say he is in the U.S. illegally and was stealing from a construction site.

Culbert denies the theft allegation.
