Incorrect. The cyclist was cleared of manslaughter but found guilty of causing bodily harm by "wanton or furious driving" an old fashioned term for an offence causing injury that is the closest equivalent to the 'dangerous driving' of a motor vehicle.
That was the verdict.
Sentencing (up to 2 years in prison or a fine) to be decided.
