Richmond Hit-And-Run Driver To Be Sentenced In July

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, VA- The sentencing for a Richmond man found guilty of felony hit-and-run in connection with a July wreck that left a 24-year-old bicyclist dead is set for early next month.

A jury found Elias Webb guilty in February. He had faced up to 10 years in prison, but a jury recommended a reduced, 3-year sentence.

Webb is set to appear in court July 2 for sentencing. He was scheduled to be sentenced in early May, but the sentencing was postponed.

Webb was released from jail in February on $400,000 bond, pending his sentencing hearing.

It took the jury of four men and 10 women just less than three hours to reach a guilty verdict in the February trial.

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 wreck, he was not impaired.

24-year-old bicyclist Lanie Kruszewksi was wearing reflective clothing and had lights on the bike she was riding. The prosecution said her body was found 109 feet from where she was struck by the SUV Webb was driving.
