JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - The sister of a UPS worker fatally struck by a motorist in Secaucus last year cried out that her brother’s killer is “getting away with it” after the man was found not guilty of death by auto.

NJ.com reports (https://bit.ly/2g46DPP ) 22-year-old Bryant Almanzar was cleared of the most serious charge against him in the February 2015 death of Angel Rivera on Thursday in Hudson County Superior Court.

However, the New Jersey man was found guilty of resisting arrest.

Almanzar will be sentenced on Jan. 27 by Judge Patrick Arre, who will also decide whether he is guilty of DWI and reckless driving charges stemming from Rivera’s death.

The 58-year-old Brooklyn man was struck by Almanzar’s vehicle while he was walking along County Avenue near a UPS facility where he worked.
