L.A. socialite found guilty of running down 2 boys in hit-and-run


A jury on Friday found Hidden Hills socialite Rebecca Grossman guilty in the deaths of Jacob Iskander, 8, and Mark Iskander, 11, who were hit and killed in a crosswalk in Westlake Village in 2020. Grossman, 60, was convicted of two counts of seconddegree murder, two counts of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence, and one count of hitandrun driving resulting in death.

Following a sixweek trial, the jury deliberated for nearly two days before handing down the unanimous verdict on Friday afternoon at Van Nuys Superior Court. Crying could be heard from both sides of the courtroom when the verdict was read.

On Sept. 29, 2020, the two boys were crossing the street in a marked crosswalk with their parents and siblings at the intersection of Triunfo Canyon Road and Saddle Mountain Drive at around 7:10 p.m. when Grossman struck them, prosecutors said. The vehicle sped through the intersection and hit the boys "right in front of the parents," according to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department. Prosecutors said Grossman was going over 70 mph on a 45 mph street.
