A Davenport man who was driving under the influence when he struck and killed a bicyclist June 3, 2021, received a 55-year prison sentence during a hearing Wednesday in Scott County District Court.

A Scott County jury in March found Bobby Fitzgerald Hunt Jr., 34, guilty of homicide by vehicle-operating under the influence, homicide by vehicle-reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death and operating under the influence-third offense in connection with the death of 40-year-old Alex Marietta.

Scott County District Judge Jeffrey Bert sentenced Hunt Jr. to 25 years in prison for the homicide by vehicle-driving under the influence, a consecutive sentence of 15 years for homicide by vehicle-reckless driving, and a consecutive 15 years for leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death.

Assistant Scott County Attorney Steven Berger said that Hunt must serve 70% of the first 40 years of his sentence, plus three years minimum on the last 15-year sentence, for a minimum of 31 years, before he can become eligible for parole.
