After the death of Noah Lee Sarvis in September, his family and friends are still seeking justice since the man who committed the crime was only charged with careless driving.
However, the case isn't as cut and dry as some may assume. Judge Tim Campbell found Felton Bland guilty of careless driving because there wasn't enough evidence to hold him for any other charges. Some of the family and friends of Sarvis felt that Bland should have been charged with vehicular homicide or DUI manslaughter, but according to the State Attorney's Office, there wasn't enough evidence to support the charges.
Bland was found guilty of careless driving and fined $1,400. He also will take a victim awareness and driving safety class and his license has been suspended.
