BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A judge has decided a man convicted in a deadly crash who never served his sentence will not be going to jail.

Judge Jessie Leblanc ruled Stanley White will be under probation for two years, but does not have to serve prison time.

White was convicted of negligent homicide after investigators said he caused a crash in July 1994 that killed an 11-week-old infant.

He was originally sentenced to two years in prison.

The attorney general's office had asked that White be ordered to report to prison to serve his original sentence.

"Makes me want to throw up. They can sit there and say he's got a bachelor's degree, my daughter didn't even get to go to kindergarten," said Rachel Deville, mother of infant killed in the deadly crash.

"He's not a lawyer, not a sheriff, not a judge, not a DA. He waited for someone to tell him the state of Louisiana in that hearing told you. They did nothing to get him back into court," said Steve Moore, White's attorney.

The state plans to appeal the judge's ruling to a higher court.
