BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A man who was sentenced in a deadly crash nearly 20 years ago, but never served the time, may soon be required to report to jail.
Stanley White, 39, of Donaldsonville, pleaded guilty in 1995 to negligent homicide for killing an infant in a crash that happened in 1994. White was sentenced to two years in prison but never served that time due to a clerical error. He did, however, receive probation.
This week, a Louisiana appeals court reinstated White's original sentence, meaning he would be required to serve the two years. White's attorneys reportedly can still appeal the latest ruling.
According to investigators, White was arrested after running into the back of a car that Rachael Deville was driving. Her 10-week-old daughter, Brittney, was killed in the crash.
