A jury recommended three years in prison; he faced a maximum of 10 years. A sentencing hearing is set to be held May 16.
The jury Wednesday convicted Elias Webb of felony hit and run in connection with the July 2012 death of 24-year-old bicyclist Lanie Kruszewski.
It took the jury of four men and 10 women just less than three hours to reach a guilty verdict, but the jurors were unable to agree on a recommended sentence Wednesday and meet again Thursday to continue deliberations.
During the trial, Elias Webb took the stand in his own defense. Webb told the jury that although he'd had a glass and a half of wine with dinner the night of the accident, he was absolutely not impaired.
He testified that an online article he read the morning after the fatal crash made him start to think the worst. He said he went back out to his vehicle and realized that there was no way he had hit a deer the night before, as he thought initially.
He went on to tell the court that he "freaked out," grabbed a golf club and smashed the rest of his windshield, which was already damaged from the crash the night before. He then went inside, laid down and cried.
He said that during this time, he even thought of harming himself.
Webb admitted he was driving the vehicle and turned himself into police a week after the wreck.
