Florida Judge orders man to display picture of his victim in his home.
Arthur Pierce won't be able to forget his victim, Chelsi Gregory, after he gets out of prison in two years.
Circuit Judge Robert Doyel said Friday that a picture, at least 2 feet wide must be displayed prominently wherever Pierce is living. It also must include lettering that says: 'I'm sorry I killed you.'
Arthur Pierce, 31, was racing with his cousin on a busy street in Winter Haven, Florida, on the afternoon of March 24, 2005. Witnesses told police Pierce was swerving in and out of traffic at about 120 mph when his Cadillac collided with a 1985 Toyota pickup, rolling the truck several times.
The pickup, in which Chelsi Gregory was a passenger, was being driven by Gregory's fiancee, Lance Chaney. Chaney survived the crash that killed his fiancee Gregory.
Pierce, who pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide for the death Gregory, received a sentence that the judge, prosecutor, and victim's family all agreed was very lenient - two years in state prison.
An advocate for Mothers Against Drunk Driving requested the photograph be part of Pierce's sentence.
The judge said that Pierce's probation officer will be allowed to search his home at any time, and if the photograph is not displayed, it will be considered a probation violation.
Arthur Pierce's cousin, Christopher Pierce, is scheduled to be sentenced by Judge Doyel on April 5.
