STONEHAM, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The suspect in a Stoneham hit-and-run that left four children injured has been arraigned.

Stephanie DeTomasi, 30, of Burlington, pleaded not guilty and was expected walk free after posting $1,000 cash bail.

Authorities say DeTomasi struck the four kids, who are all between the ages of 12-13, as they were on their bicycles on MacArthur Road on October 13. She then hit a parked car and drove away.

After prosecutors detailed DeTomasi's record, including drug, alcohol, and motor vehicle charges, Judge David Frank also barred her from driving, drinking, or using drugs.

There was no evidence presented that alcohol or drugs played a role in the crash, but DeTomasi was reportedly attending a wine event earlier on the day of the crash.

The four young victims, who all suffered minor injuries, were in court Tuesday with their parents.

"We left it up to them, they're 13, they've been through a very traumatic experience," said parent Massimo Guarino. "They all decided together they wanted to be here."

Another parent said they were happy to see DeTomasi facing charges.
