      New developments in the accident that left a Clay High School sophomore dead--The semi driver who pulled out in front of 16-year-old Cody Van Hersett on January 12 pleaded no contest to one count of vehicular homicide on Monday.

      78-year-old Lyle Schmidt was found guilty and then sentenced to 90 days in jail. He will also be on two years probation and have to pay a $750 fine.

      Van Hersett also played hockey for the Clay High team.
