What's Happening In Your World
A teenager in Oklahoma pleaded guilty to causing the death of another teenager and a judge has ordered him to attend church for 10 years to avoid prison. Tyler Alred will avoid serving time in prison and his attorney is not challenging the judge’s sentence. Speaking to Tulsa World Magazine, Alred’s attorney, Donn Baker, said about his 17 year old client, “My client goes to church every Sunday. That isn’t going to be a problem for him. We certainly want the probation for him.” This week, District Judge Mike Norman of Muskogee County, Oklahoma, decided what the conditions of the teenager’s deferred sentence were. Alred was facing charges of youthful manslaughter in the death of another teen who was the passenger in the car that he crashed. 16-year-old John Luke Dum of Muskogee died as a result of the crash. As well as the mandatory church attendance, the judge also required Alred to wear an ankle bracelet that monitors alcohol consumption. He will also have to attend victim-impact panels and contribute to events about the consequences of drinking and driving, as a speaker as well as graduate from high school and welding school. The judge also required Alred to go for counseling and be monitored for drugs and alcohol. Alred confessed that  he had consumed alcohol when he crashed into a tree with his Chevrolet pickup and caused Dum’s death on December 3, last year. He entered a guilty plea in August.
