BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A man convicted of negligent homicide for a crash that killed a 10-month-old child in 1994 was sentenced to two months in jail for violating his house arrest.
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.
In 1995, Stanley White, of Donaldsonville, pleaded guilty to the crash and was sentenced to two years in prison. A clerical error meant he never served jail time.
In May 2013, a judge gave White two years of probation. An appeals court reversed that ruling and ordered another hearing for September 18, 2014.
In September 2014, a judge then sentenced White to two years of home incarceration.
On January 28, 2015, the victim's family saw White at IHOP on Siegen Lane, according to court documents.
The court order specified that the defendant shall be confined to his home, except to attend work, church, doctor, or travel related to the fulfillment of the conditions of reporting to Probation and Parole. Any departure from those four exceptions require approval in advance, through the Department of Probation and Parole.
White told the state he was given permission, by his probation officer, to perform certain errands such as seeking employment or paying a bill. The probation officer states she never approved any trip to a restaurant.
The probation officer says White admitted to her that he was at IHOP and knew it was not approved.
White has been sentenced to two months in jail.
