The waiting game is over for a verdict in a Henry County trail, Thursday the judge found a driver guilty killing three teenage boys.
Morgan Blakey was huffing. That's the decision the judge came to Thursday in Henry County. He says the evidence proved it beyond a reasonable doubt.
And today victims parents are breathing a sigh of relief.
"It's what I was hoping to hear, I was hoping the judge would add all the evidence together. I'm glad the truth is out."
"There was no doubt in my mind what happened out there on that road."
20-year-old Morgan Blakey is guilty of reckless homicide and a DUI for huffing behind the wheel back in 2011. He passed out and crashed the car killing Levi Berg, Bradley Wood and Kelsey Clifford . Three innocent lives, parents say, were tragically lost.
"He was doing well in school, he loved baseball, he had a girlfriend, he was a typical 16-year-old boy."
Kelsey's parents say it's the little things they miss the most.
"His smile was so great he had big dimples and he just smiled all the time."
Robin Berg says Levi's death was especially hard since it came just one year after her husband's.
"Very, hard, we were still trying to get over losing Ron when I lost my son, it helps me to think that he's with his dad. He was very lost without his father and he's back with him now. If I cant have him, dad can."
But she hopes to find a silver lining. She says with Blakey's help other kids might be saved from the same fate.
"If he goes and talks to other kids, maybe they'll not pick up that can, maybe they'll think before they do it."
But until then, all the victims' parents have the same plan.
"We'll just go on with our daily lives and think about him every day."
Right after the verdict was read Blakey had to meet with a probation officer. His sentencing won't be until September.
