WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Zeal Entertainment CEO Ryan Bowman was sentenced today to just under a year in jail for a hit-and-run that left a 21-year-old woman dead on the Sunset Strip.

Bowman, whose company distributes "Girls Gone Wild"-branded videos in Australia and for mobile content outside the U.S., pleaded guilty to a felony count of leaving the scene of the crash that killed Lauren Ann Freeman as she was crossing Sunset Boulevard at Hammond street just before midnight.

Under the terms of the plea deal, in addition to 364 days in a Los Angeles jail, Bowman will also be placed on four years probation after his release and he must complete a nine-month alcohol education program. He was also ordered to have a breathalizer-like device placed on his automobile for one year.

In addition, a restitution amount still to be determined will be paid to the Freeman family, prosecutors said.

“Girls Gone Wild” parent company Mantra Entertainment tried to distance itself from Bowman, saying it parted ways with Bowman’s company more than a year ago and has no affiliation with Bowman.

Representatives from Zeal Entertainment could not be reached by press time.
