HOLLAND, Mich.--A West Michigan family continues to fight for the memory of their son. Friday the family of Jonathan Bracamontes protested at the intersection where he was killed earlier this year.

Jonathan Bracamontes was hit and killed near the intersection of US 31 and Riley Road in Holland. The woman who police say hit him has now been charged with a misdemeanor for failure to stop at the scene of an accident, but his family says that's not enough.

"I believe she got off way easy. She got off really easy," said Bracamontes brother, Christian. "I believe she should have been charged with felony hit and run instead of misdemeanor hit and run. Felony hit and run is usually what people are charged with when an accident results in somebody's death. A misdemeanor is usually property damage."

The Bracamontes family plans to repeat Friday's protest on December 30 and January 30.
