I recently blogged about the horrific accident recently caused by Chris Bucchere in San Francisco, when he sped down a steep roadway and struck a pedestrian, killing him. You can read the full post, by clicking here.
Bucchere was charged with manslaughter and faced serious jail time. However recent news reports indicate that Bucchere has agreed to enter a guilty plea an in doing so, has avoided jail all together. In what seems a sweetheart deal to me, Bucchere was reportedly sentenced to only 1,000 hours of community service and probation. Reports indicate that community response to the plea deal has been mixed.
