DENVER (KDVR) -- A dump truck driver who hit and killed a woman on a bicycle near Washington Park last summer will not go to jail.

Friday, a Denver judge sentenced David Anton to 200 hours of public service and ordered that he lose his driver's license for a year.

Anton pleaded guilty to careless driving resulting in death and admitted he hit and killed 37-year-old Alexis Bounds at the corner of Marion Parkway and Bayaud Avenue on July 24, 2019.

If Anton does not complete his service, he would have to spend 60 days in jail. The judge also ordered him to pay restitution of about $1,000.

Bounds' family repeatedly told the judge and FOX31 that the punishment is not enough and they don't believe justice was served.

Anton was visibly shaken and emotional himself. He repeatedly apologized to Bounds' family in court.
