Man found guilty in death of woman killed while jogging
Jul. 23, 2015
DEDHAM, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts man has been convicted of striking and killing a college student with his SUV while she was out jogging last year.
A jury Wednesday found 45-year-old Jeffrey Bickoff guilty of motor vehicle homicide by negligent operation in Norfolk Superior Court.
The Sharon man was also convicted of reckless assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
Prosecutors say Bickoff hit 20-year-old Haley Cremer in June 2014. The Simmons College student was thrown 85 feet by the impact.
Investigators say Bickoff had been driving with a suspended license and had several driving-related violations on his record.
The incident led lawmakers to require the Registry of Motor Vehicles to notify police when residents have licenses suspended or revoked.
Bickoff is scheduled to be sentenced on July 31.
