OPELIKA, Ala. (AP) – A judge on Wednesday sentenced a teenager in connection with the 2019 crash that killed Auburn University sports announcer Rod Bramblett.

News outlets reported that the sentence for Johnston Edward Taylor, 18, was not released because he was granted youthful offender status.

Taylor had faced two counts of reckless manslaughter for the 2019 crash that killed Bramblett and his wife Paula.

Taylor was 16 at the time of the crash. As a youthful offender, Taylor had faced a maximum sentence of three years.
