Rebecca Grossman, a wealthy California socialite & philanthropist, was sentenced Monday to 15 years to life in prison for the deaths of two young brothers in a Los Angeles crosswalk in 2020.

Grossman, 60, was convicted by a jury in February on two counts of murder, vehicular manslaughter and gross negligence in the deaths of Mark Iskander, 11, and Jacob Iskander, 8, and an additional count of hit-and-run driving resulting in death.

Prosecutors had pushed for the maximum sentence of 34 years to life. Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón on Monday said he was “deeply disappointed with the outcome.” Grossman was ordered to pay $47,161.89 in restitution to the victims’ family.

Grossman — who founded the Grossman Burn Foundation with her husband, Peter, a prominent Los Angeles plastic surgeon and burn doctor — maintained throughout the trial and sentencing that she did not see the two boys, who were crossing the street with their parents in a marked crosswalk.

Police alleged in a statement at the time that she was driving at “excessive speeds” through Westlake Village. She continued driving after the crash, they said, eventually stopping about a quarter-mile away.

“This individual showed a complete disregard for the lives and safety of others in our community through her reckless actions, which ultimately shattered a family and robbed two children of their bright futures,” Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Chief Allen Castellano said Monday.

In a pre-sentencing memo, prosecutors had argued for the maximum sentence, accusing Grossman of displaying a “narcissistic superiority” and saying she had neither shown remorse nor accepted responsibility for the crash.

“She has lived a life of privilege and clearly felt that her wealth and notoriety would buy her freedom,” they wrote.

In a letter to the boys’ parents, appended as an exhibit in the prosecution’s sentencing motion, Grossman wrote: “I am so sorry that I was portrayed as a monster to you. I will always remember this life-altering second of my life for the remainder of my life. Every day. I still have nightmares.” She said her previous efforts to express remorse had been “redacted.”

Grossman’s attorney, James Spertus, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

At the trial, prosecutors presented evidence that the data recorder in Grossman’s Mercedes SUV showed she accelerated to 81 mph just seconds before the crash, with her foot pressed to the floor. The speed limit in the residential neighborhood was 45 mph.

Grossman had no previous convictions, but the prosecution sentencing memo noted a number of driving offenses, including speeding offenses, dating to the early 2000s.

During the trial, it was alleged that she drank at least two margaritas and took Valium earlier that day, and experts testified that her mental capacity and physical reactions were probably impaired.

Investigator Michael Hale testified that her SUV struck the boys with the equivalent force of the vehicle being dropped on them from a 12-story height.


Multiple witnesses testified that she drove erratically and at excessive speeds before the crash, including allegedly swerving into the bicycle lane in an attempt to pass a car.

She appeared to be playing “a deadly game of chase” with her boyfriend at the time, the prosecution said.

Grossman was speeding behind a black Mercedes driven by her then-lover, former Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Scott Erickson, when she fatally hit the boys, prosecutors have said. Erickson was not charged.

During trial, lead defense attorney Tony Buzbee repeatedly told jurors that Erickson is responsible for the deaths of the Iskander brothers. He has suggested that the retired baseball player’s high-powered black Mercedes sped through the intersection first, hitting Jacob and tossing him to the curb and slamming into Mark, whose body was thrown high into the air before landing in the path of Grossman’s white Mercedes.

Buzbee has argued that Rebecca Grossman’s vehicle was not the first to strike the boys. He told jurors during opening statements that Erickson lied to authorities the night of the crash when he told them he was driving a 2007 Mercedes SUV.

Peter Grossman testified he had never seen that vehicle outside the second home he shared with his wife when she and Erickson were dating. The doctor instead testified that he saw Erickson’s 2016 Mercedes 63GL AMG outside the Grossmans’ home in Westlake Village on many occasions. The Grossmans’ primary home was in Hidden Hills.

Buzbee has argued that sheriff’s investigators never checked Erickson’s vehicle for damage and said that after the crash, he hid in the bushes near where Rebecca Grossman’s disabled vehicle stopped and watched as investigators took her into custody

“The loss of these two innocent lives has devastated their family and our community. Ms. Grossman’s blatant disregard for human life is a stark reminder of the grave consequences of irresponsible behavior behind the wheel,” Gascón said in a statement.

Zero remorse from her. Read another article that she actually complained that she had been through enough already with the trial and legal issues surrounding her senseless act. They should've buried her a$s for the remainder of her life.

sh1t like this is why I give cars the right of way if they seem thirsty to cross even if it's my light. You never know who's drunk or high. These a$$holes will run a red light and run over a pedestrian if they don't get out the way like it's regular sh1t.

Real talk... here in Toronto (or Ontario I guess), if you want to kill someone, the easiest way to do it is if you run them over. The amount of pedestrians killed over the last 5+ years despite the government's insistence of being tougher on reckless and dangerous drivers is a joke.

North America is so fu#king car centric. fu#k the auto industry man.

Preach big dog !!!!

Or a boat like that shark tank bozo

Streets ain’t never been safe up here imo

I used to live near DuPont and Dufferin , bicyclists get killed there each year and the city don’t care . I remember leaving the crib one morning , swinging my leg over my bike and a neighbor telling me someone just died at Dufferin and DuPont and to be careful .

I’ve been doored, hit by beck taxis doing an illegal u turn , flipped over a hood by someone stopping in my lane after blowing a stop sign , etc

I do agree this sh1t has ramped up lately but we’ve never been safe outside of a car on the roads and it does seem like cops don’t care about it at all

Bruh. I've been walking in the area I live in. Its crazy how rude drivers are to pedestrians and other drivers. I be surprised when people let me cross in the crosswalk. Even though they should anyway.
