A Los Angeles socialite who was convicted of murder for killing two young boys with her car during a chase with her lover whined to the judge that she has suffered enough — then broke down as she was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison.

Rebecca Grossman, 60 — who killed brothers Jacob, 8, and Mark Iskander, 11, in a hit-and-run incident in 2020 — made a desperate plea to Superior Court Judge Joseph Brandolino to go easy on her as prosecutors demanded she receive the max of 34 years to life in state prison.

Her lawyers argued for her to be let off with probation.

But Brandolino gave her 15 years to life, and ordered her to pay $47,000 in restitution — saying she was “not a monster as the prosecutors portrayed her to be.”

The judge cited Grossman’s history has a philanthropist in giving her the more lenient sentence.

“I am not a murderer, and I ask you to recognize that true fact,” Grossman wrote in a letter to the judge — despite being convicted of second-degree murder in February.

“My pain, my recognition of the pain the Iskanders suffer, and the pain I watch my family endure, are punishments that I already suffer and will for the rest of my life,” she added.

“Please consider this suffering when you consider what more punishment to impose on me in this case.”

This is wild:

Peter Grossman stood by his wife through her trial, despite revelations that she was drinking with her then-lover, former Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Scott Erickson before the crash. … Prosecutors say she was racing Erickson in her Mercedes GLE 43 AMG and reached speeds up to 81 mph before the fatal crash.
