Judge orders suspended sentence for convicted killer
GONZALES - A judge suspended a two-year sentence today for Stanley White, who pleaded guilty to negligent homicide in 1995 after a car wreck but never served his prison sentence.
The judge said the state was negligent for not imposing the sentence in a timely fashion and that two wrongs didn't make a right. He ordered White be put on probation rather than serve the two years in jail.
White pleaded guilty in connection with a crash which killed an 11-week-old child. He was driving on Airline Highway when he smashed into the back of the car the family was riding in.
White appealed the case and was given a bond, but the state never enforced his sentence.
News 2's Chris Nakamoto will have reaction from the courthouse today starting at noon.
