Driver Who Struck, Killed EBR Councilman Receives Light Sentence

Nicholas Alexander WBRZ

The driver who struck and killed Baton Rouge Metro Councilman Buddy Amoroso will only have to serve an additional 12 days in jail.

West Feliciana District Attorney Sam D'Aquilla says 21-year-old Nicholas Alexander had part of his 90-day sentence handed to him yesterday suspended and he also received credit for time already served.

Alexander was convicted on the lesser charge of reckless operation rather than negligent homicide after Amoroso was hit while riding his bicycle.

He's yet to be sentenced on a no contest plea of negligent injury after hitting a second biker with his SUV who was riding with Amoroso in June.
