Paige Blake, 24, was driving in her red Ford Fiesta while chatting on the instant messaging app when she clipped Freddie Oborne's bike on the A414 dual carriageway near Hatfield House.
Mr Oborne, from Hertford who was a keen athlete who competed in cycling events and triathlons, died at the scene at around a quarter past midday on Monday April 20 last year.Astonishingly, she actually got a prison sentence!
Blake, of Longwood Road, Hertford, pleaded guilty at St Albans crown court to causing death by dangerous driving and was jailed for two and a half years.But wait...
Blake is likely to serve half of her sentence - 15 months - before being released on licence to serve the rest of her sentence in the community.
Judge Michael Kay QC banned her from driving for 4 years and 3 months.
It should have been a lifetime ban.
