The 17-year-old accused of causing a car wreck that killed another teen and seriously injuring three others was in court Monday for the first time.
Christopher Hubbard is accused of driving while under the influence of marijuana when the car he was driving crashed May 19, killing 18-year-old Nathan Gentry . He walked into the Hendricks County courtroom Monday with the aid of a walker, his parents by his side.
The prosecution presented the facts to the defense a couple of days ago. And because of not having time to go through all the evidence, the defense denied the allegations against the teen. But that denial has the possibility of changing in the next few days.
Hubbard is still charged as a juvenile, but the prosecution could ask for the case to be waived to adult court.
In juvenile court, the punishment for the charges Hubbard is facing could range from jail time to probation.
