LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The man who was convicted of causing the death of four teens after crashing a stolen car into a tree while trying to get away from police is going to prison for violating the terms of his probation.
Herbert Lee was arrested on July 5 after police say they found him behind the wheel of a car that had been stolen from Avis Car Rental at the Louisville International Airport.
Lee, who is now 20, was granted probation after being convicted in the deaths of three brothers -- Jemar, Demar and Marc Claybrooks -- and their friend, Aaron Shields.
Lee, who was almost 18 when he was convicted in 2010, was tried as a juvenile. He was sentenced to one year in a juvenile and another of probation. He was released in December of 2011, but arrested seven months later.
Lee had promised to turn his life around, and was arrested just days before he was set to take part in a public memorial.
Lee's attorney and family members point out the fact that he could not find a job -- but that's not good enough for the families of his four victims.
Marc Hampton, the victims' father, said Friday, "I don't think they was hiring for car stealing, were they? That ain't got nothing to do with it, you know, unemployment. It's a lot of people unemployed -- it's millions of people unemployed and they not breaking the law and doing what he did."
Lee will likely spend the next five months at Metro Corrections. Meanwhile, Lee is scheduled to go to trial on these latest charges in March of next year.
