Hatim F. Ramadan, 21, of the 800 block of Tyson Avenue, was sentenced to 9 to 18 months in the county jail after pleading guilty to vehicular homicide associated with the death of Neil Lipschutz, 62, on November 26, 2019.

Ramadan must also serve two years of post-parole probation and must complete 100 hours of community service as conditions of his sentence.
