He faced as much as 20 years in prison, said Assistant State Attorney Spencer S. Hathaway.

The crash killed 16-year-old Cody Goodrich on July 24, 2013.

Goodrich, who was 17 at the time of the crash, was speeding and intoxicated before crashing a 2005 Dodge Dakota just before 9 p.m., authorities said.
