Topeka A Topeka lawyer has been sentenced to more than five years in prison for killing a bicyclist in a hit-and-run accident.
Forty-year-old Marc Schultz was sentenced Thursday to five years and two months in prison in the September death of 55-year-old Timothy Roberts in rural Shawnee County. Schultz pleaded no contest in April to reckless involuntary manslaughter and other charges.
He admitted that he was under the influence of alcohol, marijuana and prescription drugs and had his then 5-year-old son in the car with him. Schulz also admitted that he left Roberts on the side of the road after hitting him from behind.
Schulz had three DUI convictions before the fatal accident. His law license was suspended after he pleaded to the charges.
