LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) – A 37-year-old Leavenworth man has been sentenced to 3.5 years in jail for a fatal hit-and-run.
Justen Michael McCarter was sentenced Thursday in the death of 44-year-old Adam Wheeler in March 2020.
Police say McCarter was speeding on a stolen motorcycle when he hit Wheeler, who was crossing a Leavenworth street.
Media reports that witnesses told police McCarter was drag racing when he hit Wheeler.
McCarter pleaded guilty in October to involuntary manslaughter and possession of a stolen motorcycle.
