Hit & Run Driver Sentenced To 6 Years

by The Editors on March 13, 2012

Julianne Elyse Thomson, 24, was sentenced to six years in prison on Monday, March 12, 2012 in the Carlsbad hit-and-run death of cyclist Arthur Jacobs, 64, according to a story in the UT San Diego.

Jacobs died July 27, 2011 about 9:45 a.m. on El Camino Real at the intersection with Cassia Road, authorities said. . . Thomson pleaded guilty in January to gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and hit and run causing death, and agreed to the prison sentence. She was sentenced in Vista Superior Court according to her plea agreement.

Sad that we have to worry about drunk drivers at 9:45 AM. Our thoughts are with Jacob’s family.
