Former West Orange-Stark coach convicted in hit-and-run to serve 180 days in jail

Carl Broussard had been charged with two counts of failure to stop and render aid, the official charge for hit and run, in the Nov. 2, 2015 deaths of Ava Lewis, 25, and her 6-year-old daughter LaMya Newhouse. He was sentenced Monday to 10 years' probation and ordered to spend 180 days in jail.

As part of his probation sentence, former West Orange-Stark assistant football coach Carl Broussard has been ordered to spend 180 days in jail.

Judge Buddie Hahn announced earlier this week Broussard would be sentenced to 10 years' probation, but reserved to the right to have him serve jail time.

Broussard is ordered to surrender to the Orange County Jail no later than June 15.

He had been charged with two counts of failure to stop and render aid, the official charge for hit and run, in the Nov. 2, 2015 deaths of Ava Lewis, 25, and her daughter LaMya Newhouse.

The mother and daughter tried to cross MacArthur Drive on foot when they were struck by a car driven by Broussard.

Broussard left the scene and turned himself into the Orange Police Department the next day.

He was indicted last July and pleaded guilty in March.

On Monday, he was sentenced by a judge to 10 years' probation and a $10,000 fine.

The crime carried a punishment range of 2 to 20 years in prison
