SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — A Marin County man who pleaded guilty to striking and killing a 71-year-old pedestrian with his bicycle in San Francisco last year was sentenced Thursday to probation and community service.
37-year-old Chris Bucchere was sentenced to three years probation and 1,000 hours of community service for the death of Sutchi Hui. Last month, Bucchere accepted a plea bargain and pleaded guilty to one count of felony vehicular manslaughter.
According to prosecutors, Bucchere ran a stop sign and several traffic lights while riding his bicycle along Castro Street on the morning of March 29, 2012. Hui was hit by Bucchere in a crosswalk at the intersection of Castro and Market and died several days later.
