Hillsboro, MO (KSDK) - A St. Francois County man who was given probation over a prison term after pleading guilty to his role in a fatal traffic crash in 2008 will now go to prison after violating the terms of his probation.

21 year old Dustin Ray of Bismarck pleaded guilty last year to involuntary manslaughter and assault charges connected to the 2008 crash along Highway A and Pioneer Road in Jefferson County.

Judge Gary Kramer ordered Ray to serve the next six years in prison on the involuntary manslaughter charge Ray admitted to in 2011.

17 year old Jessica Kimble of Hillsboro died in that crash, after Ray lost control of his car while speeding down the highway in an attempt to scare Kimble and another teenage girl riding in the vehicle.

Ray's carleft the roadway, drove down an embankment where it slammed into a cluster of trees.

After the judge's decision, Linda Twibell,Jessica Kimble's mother,told NewsChannel 5, "There is some closure, it's hard to explain. But at least he can't kill anyone in jail."

Originally Ray was ordered to serve sixty days shock treatment in the county jail, followed by five years probation. That deal was revoked Monday due to Ray being in violation of the probation terms following an incident this past July.

Along with the six years of incarceration, Ray was also ordered to enroll in an institutional treatment program while he's in prison.
