Man, 19, receives four-year prison sentence in crash that killed teen

BLUE SPRINGS, MO (KCTV) -

Family and friends of a Blue Springs teenager killed in a car crash packed a courtroom Wednesday as the driver who caused that crash was sentenced. 

Many of them were not happy with what they heard. 

Blake Isaacson, 19, was sentenced to four years in prison but could be out of jail after just 120 days. 

Isaacson was driving with Katelin Mershon and her best friend Macie Rice, both 15, in the car with him. 

He somehow lost control of the car and hit several trees, killing Rice and hurting Mershon. 

"Him not showing any kind of remorse or that he had taken any kind of responsibility for his actions has been pretty traumatizing on both families, as well as my daughter with her trying to recover," said Amy Mershon, Katelin's mother. 

Makahiil Mohammad, Isaacson's childhood friend, said the sentence was appropriate. 

"Blake did commit a crime, so obviously there's time to it," he said. "He's a good kid and not everybody deserves a life sentence, so I mean the time that he got is appropriate." 

He has been out on bond since the crash and was taken into custody to begin serving his time immediately.
