California Socialite Rebecca Grossman Sentenced to 15 Years to Life in Prison for Killing Two Young Brothers in Crosswalk


On Monday, a Los Angeles judge sentenced 60-year-old Rebecca Grossman, a prominent California socialite, to 15 years to life in prison for the hit-and-run deaths of two young brothers, 11-year-old Mark Iskander and his 8-year-old brother, Jacob, in a tragic incident that occurred in 2020.

The Tragic Incident

The lives of the Iskander family were forever changed on the night of September 29, 2020, as they were crossing a street in Westlake Village, Los Angeles. Rebecca Grossman, speeding through the crosswalk, fatally struck the two young brothers, Mark and Jacob Iskander, in an incident that shocked the community.

The Trial and Sentencing

Grossman, the wife of a well-known Los Angeles burn doctor, was found guilty by a Los Angeles jury in February on multiple charges: two counts of second-degree murder, two counts of gross vehicular manslaughter, and one count of hit-and-run driving resulting in death.

During the trial, Grossman attempted to appeal to the judge, Superior Court Judge Joseph Brandolino, for leniency, arguing that she had suffered enough. However, her pleas fell on deaf ears as the judge handed down a sentence of two concurrent 15-years-to-life sentences, plus an additional three years for fleeing the scene, which will run concurrently with the other sentences.

Community Reaction

The sentencing of Rebecca Grossman has sent waves through the community, with many expressing outrage at the initial incident and relief that justice has been served. The case has brought attention to the issue of reckless driving and the devastating impact it can have on innocent lives.

Looking Ahead

While nothing can bring back the lives of Mark and Jacob Iskander, the sentencing of Rebecca Grossman brings a sense of closure to the family and the community. It serves as a stark reminder of the consequences of reckless and negligent actions and the importance of road safety.

As Rebecca Grossman begins her prison sentence, the Iskander family can finally begin to heal, knowing that justice has been served for their beloved sons.


As of the latest reports, Rebecca Grossman is serving her sentence and is currently incarcerated. The Iskander family has not released any recent public statements, but they are surely continuing to grieve and heal from their tragic loss. The community remains supportive of the family, offering condolences and assistance during this difficult time.
