SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — The cyclist who fatally struck a 71-year-old-pedestrian in San Francisco last year pleaded guilty to felony vehicular manslaughter on Monday. San Francisco prosecutors said it’s the first conviction of its kind.
Under a plea agreement, however, 37-year-old Chris Bucchere of Marin County will not serve any time in jail. Instead, he will be sentenced to 1,000 hours of community service when he goes before the judge in San Francisco Superior Court on Aug. 16.
Sutchi Hui, 71, died four days after Bucchere hit him at Castro and Market streets on March 29, 2012.
