Julian Reis, Former New Bedford Voc Student, Sentenced For Texting While Driving

A former Greater New Bedford Voc-Tech student who pleaded guilty to texting and driving will lose his license for 15 years and serve three months of gps-monitored home confinement as a result of an accident in January of 2012 that killed his classmate, Andrew McCann. 20 year old  Julian Reis also faces three years probation and must perform 80 hours of community service during each year of his probation. Some of that service will be spent addressing students about the dangers of texting while driving.

In a statement released late Tuesday afternoon, the McCann family said they are praying for Reis and everyone affected by their son’s death and also urged others not to text and drive.
