LOS ANGELES - An 89-year-old man whose car hurtled through a farmers market, killing 10 people, was let off on probation Monday by a judge who said he believed the defendant deserved to go prison but was too ill.

George Russell Weller was convicted Oct. 20 of 10 counts of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence in a case that renewed debate over whether elderly people should lose their driver's licenses.

Weller, confined to bed, was not in court for his sentencing.

The detailed description of how he ran down those poor people makes me sick. His attorney claimed he had "pedal confusion". Mister, if you are able to negotiate your car around other cars and obstacles to avoid hitting them, that ain't pedal confusion. Sick. Just sick.
