Sentencing for Ohio woman in hit-and-run death

Published:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- A driver faces up to six years in prison after pleading guilty to an involuntary manslaughter charge in a crash that killed a central Ohio teacher who was riding a bicycle.

Thirty-six-year-old Mary Kathryn Paul also pleaded guilty in a Delaware County court last year with failing to stop after an accident.

Paul was scheduled for sentencing Monday in Delaware in a case stemming from the death of Bob Lennon, a popular teacher and running coach at St. Francis DeSales High School in Columbus.

The 64-year-old Lennon was bicycling in Delaware County in September when he was struck by a passing driver and was left behind.

A special prosecutor handling the case has said reports from the coroner indicate Lennon died instantly.
