A New York City teenager has been sentenced to 5-15 years in prison today after being involved in an accident that killed four friends.

Joseph Beer, 19, pleaded guilty in July to aggravated vehicular homicide, admitting that he was speeding and had smoked marijuana before the car accident in 2012.

Beer slammed his Subaru into a tree off the Southern State Parkway.  His friends were killed instantly.

He was denied being charged at youthful offender status today, but Beer was 17 years old when the crash happened.
