TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- A teen charged in a fatal accident that killed a classmate was sentenced to three years in a juvenile detention facility.

Adam Erickson was sentenced Wednesday in Shawnee County District Court.

Assistant District Attorney, Matt Patterson, told 13 News that Judge Joseph Johnson went against a recommendation to suspend the detention term.

Erickson previously pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and three counts of aggravated battery.

Erickson was 15-years-old when the car he was driving rolled in the 4500 hundred block of SE 101st street in October 2012.

Shawnee Heights freshman and cross country runner Cameron Johnson was killed. Three other passengers were also injured.

Erickson will also spend a year on supervision after his release.
