Young pleads no contest to charges against him regarding his involvement in deadly crash in Uvalde last year

On Thursday, May 31, Jack Young entered a plea of no contest to the charges against him.


Last year, in March 2017, Young is said to have driven into oncoming traffic hitting a shuttle bus carrying church-goers in Uvalde.

At the time, Young, according to an affidavit, admitted to being on prescription drugs that can cause drowsiness and he was also texting and driving before he crashed into the church bus.

Young, 21, is currently facing thirteen two-count indictments for intoxication manslaughter and manslaughter, both second-degree felonies.

A plea of no contest is an alternative to a guilty or not guilty plea. It means the defendant neither disputes nor admits to doing the crime. No contest is not an admission of guilt but is treated as a criminal conviction by the court, showing up on the defendant’s criminal record.
