Jesus Pinkston claims his 25-year sentence for the death of 48-year-old Christopher White is excessive.
White, executive director of the Community Legal Aid Society of Delaware, was killed in April 2010 when Pinkston, fleeing an earlier hit-and-run in a stolen car, careened onto a Wilmington sidewalk where White was standing.
The commissioner noted in a report this week that less than a year before White's death, Pinkston was declared a habitual driving offender and had his license revoked for five years. He nevertheless continued to drive and was arrested twice in February 2010 for driving with a revoked license.
