SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A man who pleaded guilty to texting while driving in connection to a fatal Suffolk crash is now facing four years in prison.
A judge sentenced Camren Lamar Artis on Thursday to 10 years — six of which was suspended — and five years of probation.
Police charged Artis with involuntary manslaughter following a three-vehicle crash in April 2017 that killed 57-year-old Duke F. Doyle and injured another. Artis pleaded guilty to that charge as well as texting while operating a vehicle.
The judge also suspended Artis’ license, and ordered him to complete 100 hours of community service.
