Perry man sentenced to 32 days in bicyclist’s death

? A northeastern Kansas man has been sentenced to 32 days in jail for his role in a traffic accident that left a bicycle rider dead.

Forty-six-year-old Randy Ledbetter, of Perry, was convicted in September of driving under the influence when his SUV struck a bicycle ridden by 40-year-old Michael Anthony Ebron.

The accident happened the night of June 13, 2009, on U.S. 24 in Topeka. The jury declined to convict Ledbetter of manslaughter, concluding that Ebron’s own intoxication and erratic riding contributed to the accident that killed him.

The Topeka Capital Journal reports Shawnee County District Judge Mark Braun imposed the 32-day sentence Thursday, ordering Ledbetter to spend seven days in custody and 25 days under house arrest.

Ebron did not have a permanent address.
