TAMPA - Schoolteacher Jennifer Porter, 28, is scheduled to be arraigned this morning in connection with a hit-and-run accident that left two brothers dead.

However, Porter's lawyer, Barry Cohen, has already filed a not guilty plea on her behalf and waived her appearance in court. Porter faces a single count of leaving the scene of an accident involving death, a second-degree felony that could bring her up to 15 years in prison if she is convicted.
