— A sentencing hearing has been continued until 11 a.m. on Aug. 13 for the Steamboat Springs driver who swerved, hit and killed a German motorcyclist.

Scott Penfold was found guilty July 15 of careless driving resulting in death as well as weaving.

Judge James Garrecht said during court Wednesday morning the sentencing was continued because Penfold was reportedly experiencing some medical issues.

Penfold faces a minimum of 10 days in Routt County Jail, a maximum of one year in the jail and a fine of between $300 and $1,000.
