District Attorney Jan Scully announced today that Jeffrey Crayton Yelverton was convicted by jury of voluntary manslaughter and felony hit and run.

Yelverton had been seen driving repeatedly at excessive speeds in front of the Loaves and Fishes homeless shelter. In March 2010, Yelverton sped by several patrons of the shelter when three Loaves and Fishes workers attempted to stop him. 

Instead of stopping, Yelverton drove directly toward volunteer worker Thomas William Deollos and struck him with his car.Deollos was severely injured and died two months later. 

Yelverton then drove to the Arden Fair mall, where he attempted to report the incident as an attempted robbery in which he used self-defense.

Sentencing is set for July 15, 2011 at 9:00 a.m. in Department 18 of the Sacramento Superior Court.
