SARASOTA, Fla. — The 25-year-old woman who hit and killed a boy who was biking to school will temporarily lose her license and have to pay a fine.
Charity Lamb appeared Thursday before a judge who charged her with failure to yield to a pedestrian. Lamb will lose her license for six months, be required to attend a 12-hour traffic school and pay a $1,000 fine.
The boy's mother also attended the hearing with her lawyer.
Roman Miller, 9, was biking to school with his sister back in May. The two were in a crosswalk at the intersection of Nodosa Drive and Webber Street, where investigators say Lamb stopped to let the sister pass but claimed to have not seen Roman.
