A truck driver convicted two weeks ago of misdemeanor vehicular homicide for a 2011 crash that killed a 2-year-old Bellevue boy was sentenced Tuesday to less than a year in jail.
Leamond Pierce of New Castle, Delaware received a 300-day sentence and was ordered to pay a $500 fine.
The 54-year-old Pierce was driving a semi on Interstate 80 near Waverly in December 2011 when it rear-ended a vehicle driven by the family of Robert "Aiden" Curry. Authorities say poor weather conditions contributed to the crash.
Pierce's sentence is nearly complete, but he will face an extradition hearing because he's wanted in Delaware for a parole violation after serving 13 years for a 1981 killing.
