MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) — A New York City teenager involved in a fiery crash on a Long Island roadway that killed his four friends is set to be sentenced.

Joseph Beer of Queens pleaded guilty in July to aggravated vehicular homicide. He told a Nassau County judge he had smoked marijuana and was speeding when his high-performance sports car crashed into a tree on the Southern State Parkway in October 2012.

A jury in June had deadlocked on the aggravated vehicular homicide charge. A month later, Beer pleaded guilty, saying he wanted to spare the victims' families the ordeal of a second trial.

Beer was 17 at the time of the crash. A judge will decide Tuesday if he gets 4 years as a youthful offender. Otherwise, he's looking at a 5-to-15 year term.
