Driver in Deadly Venice Boardwalk Crash Sentenced to 42 Years to Life
Los Angeles judge on Friday sentenced a man to 42 years to life in state prison for deliberately driving his car into pedestrians on the Venice boardwalk, killing an Italian newlywed and injuring 17 others.
In June, Nathan Louis Campbell was found guilty of second-degree murder in the death of Alice Gruppioni, an Italian tourist visiting California with her husband on their honeymoon. Campbell also was found guilty on several counts of assault with a deadly weapon and hit-and-run charges.
“All you had to do was stop,” Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Kathryn Solorzano said. “All you had to do was walk away and you chose not to do that.”
Solorzano told Campbell that he displayed a complete disregard for the human life and that the agony he caused his victims and their families could have been avoided.
