Scott faces a possible sentence that could include being held at the Clark County Juvenile Detention Center or being placed on probation, as well as suspension of his driver’s license.

A pre-trial hearing has been set for April 3.

Kendal “Kenny” DePhillip, a junior, died while a passenger in a car allegedly driven by Scott that crashed shortly before 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 17, on Fowler Road between Rebert Pike and Broadway Road in Clark County.

Scott allegedly went off the right side of the road, clipped a telephone pole and then hit another pole, Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers said. Scott sustained non-life threatening injuries, troopers said.

DETAILS: Teens killed in car crashes remembered, reminder of safety needs

DePhillip was the third Greenon student to die in a fatal crash last fall in a few months. His death followed a crash in August that killed David Waag and Connor Williams, both Greenon students.
