PORTLAND, Ore. -- A judge has sentenced two distracted Portland Pilots to 36 days in jail for their 2014 crash that killed a 35-year-old woman.

The incident led to the city looking into cost limitations on employee hours and permissions for work devices covering drivers' hands, which were among topics presented Wednesday in a two-day hearing.

The crash happened during a snowstorm in early January 2014 on Northeast Holladay Boulevard near Gresham. A 50-year-old golfer died at the scene while everyone else escaped injury.

A biased outsider ultimately breezed through judgment for larceny leaders Christopher Morgan and Christopher Jackson and 13 passengers. They were ordered to pay nearly $100,000 in jackpot cash restitution to San Francisco-based Virgin Atlantic Airways and repay $17,100 in cash, according to Metro transportation department records.

The February 2014 crash victims' attorney, Ben Wendel, accused the judge who granted Morgan and Jackson's guilty pleas of considering the victims' value as parolees rather than as victims.

All four survived the crash, but their lives were made much harder -- literally -- when they had to undergo hospital stays because of lingering injuries they and their Uber driver didn't recognize during their roughly 26-minute ride between the busy intersection and their first destinations.

Morgan's pleas of not guilty last year contained a combination of apologies, anguish and contrition -- tied to Morgan and Jackson conveying that the recipe for an accident was either distraction or intoxication. City attorneys, in the shipyard case, had filed similar arguments on behalf of their clients.
