“It’s clear Mr. Spencer had a disregard for life,” Barrie said in a release.
Spencer’s mother Betty told the victims’ family members in court her son didn’t mean to cause the accident and asked for leniency. Her pleading didn’t sit well with Cadogan’s mother Kaylin Fox.
“He just hit him and kept going,” Fox said in court, according to Channel 2. “And for that I can’t forgive that.”
Fox asked for the maximum sentence. Cadogan’s friend, Jodi Decosta, agreed.
“Since that accident, my life went from like happy to turbulent,” Decosta said in court.
Spencer will serve out his sentence at the Georgia Department of Corrections, according to the release. He will also serve five years on probation.
