Kevin Jones, 27, faces a maximum of 30 days in the San Mateo County sheriff’s work program. He’ll also be on probation two years.

Prosecutors said Jones ran a red turn arrow and his Toyota Camry was broadsided by an Infiniti, killing the 73-year-old Halberstam, who was in the front passenger seat. The other driver was not hurt or charged.
