From The Washington Post

An Annapolis man was sentenced Friday to four years in prison for running over and killing a 71-year-old woman moments after she walked out of her church in Northeast Washington.

Joel R. Bromwell, 32, pleaded guilty in May to involuntary manslaughter and driving under the influence. The victim, Ruby Whitfield, had been a beloved cafeteria worker at Sidwell Friends School, retiring in 2008 after 44 years there.

Bromwell faced up to 30 years in prison, but prosecutors said in D.C. Superior Court documents that he should be credited for acknowledging his conduct and for “showing a willingness to undertake the hard work of amending his life.”

Two friends who saw Whitfield get hit and dragged down Florida Avenue on March 21 called the sentence too lenient. One said the images have forced her into therapy. The other, Jessie Thaxton, said: “That’s all he got? That’s nothing for taking a person’s life in a hit-and-run. He would get more than that for killing an animal.”
