Texas driver sentenced for hitting cyclist

A jury in Dallas County has sentenced a driver to five years of probation and two years of community service after finding her guilty of aggravated assault in hitting a cyclist. The jury found that Jane Dolkart, a law professor at Southern Methodist University, used her car as a deadly weapon when she drove into cyclist Tommy Thomas at White Rock Lake last May.

According to a report from the Associated Press, witnesses said Dolkart honked her horn as she followed Thomas along the lake. Thomas suffered cuts and bruises after Dolkart's car hit his bike and dragged him under the car.
