Plea set in crash that killed Auburn broadcaster, wife
The teen charged in a crash that killed Auburn University broadcaster Rod Bramblett and his wife Paula will face a reduced punishment after a judge granted him youthful offender status.
Johnston Edward Taylor will receive a maximum sentence of three years after being charged with reckless homicide. He was 16 at the time of the crash in 2019 when he was driving about 90 mph and had marijuana in his system.
The youthful offender status was granted by the judge because Taylor had no criminal history. A plea hearing is set for later this month in Lee County.
