    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.
