Sentence From Heaven

Dec 1, 2012

An Oklahoma judge sentenced a teen to attend church every Sunday for 10 years as part of his deferred sentence for a DUI manslaughter case he pled guilty to in August.  Tyler Alred killed his friend and passenger, John Luke Dum, 16, of Muskogee, Okla., Dec. 3 when he crashed his Chevrolet pickup into a tree. Alred had been drinking at the time.

Alred’s clean criminal and school records helped him avoid jail time, but the Muskogee County judge who deferred his sentence also gave him a long list of probation conditions. In addition to his mandated church attendance, Alred must also wear an alcohol-monitoring anklet, attend victim-impact panels, speak at events about the consequences of drinking and driving, and graduate from high school.
