Tam Duc Le has pleaded guilty to seven charges stemming from the March 21, 2007, deaths of three North Bryan teens in a car wreck,
The 19-year-old was sentenced to 30 years with four-and-a-half to serve in a state prison. The remainder of the 30 years is to be served on probation, according to Superior Court Judge Paul Rose
Le pleaded guilty Wednesday morning in Bryan County Superior Court: three counts of vehicular homicide, two counts of reckless driving, and one count each of driving too fast for conditions and failure to maintain lane.
Bryan County Sheriff's Deputy Mike Maxwell testified that the car being driving by Le was going an estimated 74 to 90 mph on Hwy. 119 near Old Patrick School Road when it rounded a curve and rammed a nearly stopped truck.
The dead teens, Melissa and Heather Arthur and Laura Cobb, were classmates of Le's at Bryan County High School. The car Le was driving, a 1995 Chevy Cavalier, belonged to Cobb, according to testimony at Wednesday's hearing.
