No Jail Time for Buckland Teen in Texting-While-Driving Fatality

A Buckland teenager will not do jail time in connection with a fatal distracted driving accident last July.  Jacob Earl was given a suspended sentence and community service in connection with the crash that killed a Connecticut motorcyclist and injured another.  Earl admitted he was texting while driving.  Part of his sentence will require him to speak at local high schools on the dangers of distracted driving.
