A judge sentenced Bret Biedscheid to 90 days in the Deschutes County Jail and 500 hours of community service for leaving the scene of a deadly hit and run crash in 2011.

 

48 year old Anthony Martin was killed when Biedscheid's truck hit him.

 

The District Attorney's office recommended Biedscheid serve 16 months in prison.

 

The attorney for the victim's family, Thomas D'Amore says he's disappointed, but not surprised by the sentence.

 

"It's unfortunate I think there was a little taking advantage of the process a little bit here.  Because Mr. Anthony Martin wasn't the upstanding citizen in the community compared to Mr. Biedscheid.  He got off very easy."

 

Martin's sister, Theresa Gibbs, was so upset, she didn't talk with the media following the sentencing.

 

Biedscheid did apologize to the family in the hearing and says this incident has had a terrible impact on his life.
