JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A 19-year-old man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for the DUI deaths of two Brookhaven High School students.

Attorney General Jim Hood, in a news release Tuesday, said Warren County Judge Frank Vollor sentenced Charles W. Acy III, of Brookhaven, on two counts of aggravated DUI resulting in death.

Hood says Vollor sentenced Acy to 15 years in prison and 10 years of post-release supervision on each count. The sentences are to run consecutively.

Authorities say Acy was driving erratically throughout the day of Oct. 14, 2014 and that night collided head-on with a pickup driven by 18-year-old Jevonte Dickey. Dickey and his passenger, 18-year-old Shaquan Richardson, were headed home from a school sporting event.

Acy’s toxicology reports showed he had marijuana and Alprazolam in his system.
