Updated November 14, 2013: A northeast Oklahoma store clerk who pled no contest to selling alcohol to a minor who later died in a car crash has been sentenced.

Colton Kerns, 17 of Fairland, died in a single car crash the night of his high school prom in 2012.  Authorities say he was drunk at the time, was not wearing a seatbelt and was partially ejected from his vehicle.

Authorities say a surveillance camera shows Kerns buying vodka the night before at the Woodshed Liquor Store in Afton from clerk Stacey Dixon.  Investigators say Dixon never asked to see identification.

Dixon was sentenced to five years, with all but 90 being suspended.  Dixon is to spend 90 days in the Department of Corrections.
