Teen Sentenced to Prison for Crash That Killed Mass. Police Officer

The 19-year-old suspect was ordered to immediately begin serving his seven to 14-year prison sentence

A judge has sentenced a teen to prison for his role in a crash in New Hampshire that killed an off-duty Massachusetts police officer.

Michael Ricci was ordered to immediately begin serving his seven to 14-year prison sentence after the hearing Monday afternoon.

The 19-year old previously pleaded guilty to charges of negligent homicide, assault and reckless conduct in connection to the crash that killed 55-year-old Louis Remigio.

Prosecutors say Ricci, of Burlington, Massachusetts, was racing his car in North Hampton in October 2017 when he tried to make a U-turn through a closed crossover and collided with Remigio's motorcycle.

Remigio, of Somerville, Massachusetts, died at a hospital the next day.

Ricci apologized to Remigio's family Monday, saying that he accepts responsibility for his "error in judgment."
