Sarpy County Judge Makes Ruling in Fatal Teenager Crash

A Sarpy County judge ruled Friday that a teenage driver has to maintain contact with a probation officer to confirm she's still in therapy.  

16-year-old Madeline Shely pled no contest to a misdemeanor charge of motor vehicle homicide.  

She was behind the wheel of a vehicle that crashed into a pickup at the intersection of Highway 370 and 180th street in October of 2013.  

15-year-old Nate LaFave was killed and 15-year-old Carly Ann Kelly was injured.

Investigators said Shely failed to yield to vehicles that had the right of way.  

The judge in the case ruled that Shely suffered enough, and as part of a mediation process between the LaFave and Shely families, it was decided they will conduct a book drive in Nate's memory.

Donated books will be delivered to the Junior League of Omaha's "A Book Of My Own" program and distributed to at-risk youth age 14 and under through several metro agencies. Adult books will go to local literacy programs.

Books may be brought to the Concord Mediation Center (4225 North 90th Street, Omaha), Back and Neck Care Center (2055 North 156th Street, Omaha), Ridgeview Animal Hospital (18142 Wright Street, Omaha) and Walnut Creek Veterinary Clinic (96th Street and Highway 370, Bellevue).
