Bishop Who Killed Cyclist While Driving Drunk Will Serve Seven Years

From Time-

Heather Cook was a top bishop in the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland

A former high-ranking Maryland bishop who fatally struck a cyclist while driving under the influence of alcohol last December will go to prison for seven years, a judge in Baltimore ruled on Tuesday.

On the afternoon of Dec. 27, Heather E. Cook, at the time the second-highest ranking bishop in the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland, got into her Subaru Forrester and began driving through the affluent Baltimore neighborhood of Roland Park. Police would later measure her blood alcohol level at 0.22, nearly three times the legal limit.
