Man convicted of manslaughter in fatal police crash
BATON ROUGE - A 22-year-old Baton Rouge man has been convicted of manslaughter and other charges in a fatal 2014 police chase-related crash.
The crash occurred eight hours after an armed robbery, in which Brian White was found guilty in August and later sentenced to 20 years in prison.
White faces up to 40 years behind bars on the manslaughter conviction. The crash took the life of 37-year-old Elvin Dunn Jr., of Baton Rouge.
White was fleeing from police on Jan. 20, 2014, after they tried to stop him for a traffic violation when he ran two stop signs and smashed into Dunn's car. The impact ejected Dunn from his car, killing him.
White also was found guilty Thursday night of aggravated flight from an officer, and hit-and-run involving death or serious injury.
