APPLETON, Wis. (WBAY) - Nineteen-year-old Blake Doxtator was sentenced Monday to two years in prison and eight hours in a cemetery for a car crash that killed a 13-year-old boy on Halloween, 2016.
Prosecutors say Doxtator was driving too fast with four 13-year-old boys in his minivan in the town of Oneida. When he lost control, the minivan rolled several times and hit a utility pole.
The Outagamie County Sheriff's Office says everyone in the van was wearing a seat belt, but Braxton Kasee, who was in the back seat, died at the hospital. All four others in the van were treated for injuries and released.
Doxtator pleaded no contest to homicide by negligent operation of a vehicle and first-degree recklessly endangering safety.
After prison, during his five years of extended supervision, the judge ordered Doxtator to give 25 hours of community service, with eight hours of community service the day before Halloween at the cemetery where Braxton is buried. His community service may also include speaking about the dangers of reckless driving.
He must also provide $300 for a scholarship at Seymour High School "regarding arts or animal-related issues."
