ASCENSION PARISH, LA (THECREOLE) — Stanley White, the man convicted of negligent homicide in 1994 stemming from an automobile accident that took the life of an 11 week old infant, has walked free from an Ascension Parish courtroom today.
Judge Jesse LeBlanc ruled that White would instead spend the next two years under probation.
White’s original sentence of two years was decided in 1994, when he appealed it stating the length of time was too long. The appeal was not successful, yet White never served more than six days in jail.
An appeal is expected to be made in today’s ruling.
