Teen convicted in crash that killed 2 sentenced to 5 years
GREEN BAY, Wis. — A teen who admitted using marijuana shortly before he caused a crash that killed two people in Brown County has been sentenced to five years in prison.
Devon Robley was 17 when he ran a stop sign after smoking marijuana at a county park in Ledgeview in July 2016 and crashed his pickup into an SUV. Sixteen-year-old Simon Hill, of Greenleaf, was riding in the pickup and died in the crash. A 32-year-old De Pere woman in the SUV, Laurie Shaha, also died in the crash.
Robley pleaded no contest in October to homicide by negligent operation of a vehicle and operating a vehicle under the influence of a controlled substance.
WLUK -TV says Robley apologized during Friday’s sentencing hearing and asked for forgiveness from family members of the victims.
