A teenager in Boston has been sentenced to two years in prison after being found guilty of causing a traffic fatality due to texting and driving.

Aaron Deveau, just 18 years old,  was convicted of motor vehicle homicide by texting. His car crashed head-on into an oncoming vehicle and caused the death of 55 year-ol David Bowley.

Deveau was given tha maximum sentence allowed under the law, intended to discourage drivers against committing the same crime.

Not only did Deveau get a two year prison sentence, his driving privileges have also been revoked for fifteen years.

Texting while driving is a crime in Washington, DC and 38 states.
