RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) - A jury recommended a three-year sentence for Elias Webb. The judge set Webb's bond at $400,000. If he posts bond, Webb can be free until he is formally sentenced in May, the judge ruled. Webb faced up to ten years in prison. Webb did have to surrender his driver's license.

On Wednesday, a jury found Webb, 31, guilty on a felony charge of hit-and-run causing death or injury.

Webb left the scene of a deadly accident last summer on River Road in Richmond. Police said Webb hit Lanie Kruszewski,24, while she rode her bicycle at night.

Webb came forward days after the accident and told police he thought he had hit a deer.
