Man Who Killed Teen In Road Rage Shooting Is Sentenced

/ WDAC

WEST CHESTER (AP) – A man who pleaded guilty to fatally shooting a recent high school graduate in a fit of road rage on a Chester County roadway was sentenced by a judge. David Desper was sentenced to 20 to 40 years after an emotional hearing that had him, the victim’s family and even the judge in tears. Desper pleaded guilty to shooting 18-year-old Bianca Roberson in West Goshen Township last year after they jockeyed for space on a highway merger. Roberson’s mother told the court her 22-year-old son had died and Bianca was her only remaining child. She says she’ll never “get to hear that word, ‘Mom,’ again”. A sobbing Desper repeatedly told the family he was sorry.
