>> 52 year old Charles Pickett Jr, was sentenced to 40 years in prison Monday, after being convicted of hitting a group of cyclists in a Michigan town about 140 miles west of Detroit. The verdict from a judge in Kalamazoo County, came almost exactly two years after the tragedy.

Prosecutors said Pickett had taken painkillers and other drugs before plowing into the cyclists from behind, killing three women and two men and injuring four others.>> Paul Gobble is one of the survivors and says, the verdict is a relief.>> As far as I'm concerned, it'll be the last time I have to come into the courthouse, and the last time I have to deal with anything to do with Pickett, and instead just be able to focus on riding for the love of it.
