A man was sentenced for his role in a deadly crash that happened in December of 2020.

Jesse Lottie, Jr. was found guilty by a jury trial on March 8 of this year. Lottie reportedly had been driving, trying to outrun police who were called about a robbery, when he smashed into another vehicle in Mishawaka, killing 18-year-old Elizabeth Johnson-Neher and 19-year-old Clayton McClish.

Lottie tried to say he wasn’t the driver, but his phone was found on the driver’s side.

Lottie was found guilty of several counts, including two counts of resisting law enforcement, leaving the scene of an accident causing death, and carrying a handgun without a license.

This week, a judge sentenced Jesse Lottie Jr. to 48 years in prison.
