Cyclist-Assaulting Doctor Sentenced Today

New, 37 comments

Christopher Thompson, the Brentwood doctor convicted of assaulting two bicyclists with his car in Mandeville Canyon was sentenced to five years in prison today. According to the LA Times, the doctor apologized to the injured cyclists in the courtroom this morning. However, it seems that apology was too little too late: "[Judge Millington] said he believed that Thompson had shown a lack of remorse during the case and that the victims were particularly vulnerable while riding their bicycles."
