A man was sentenced to three-and-half years in prison on Wednesday for his role in the shooting death of a Barrie teen in November 2021.

With time served, Alexander Craggs has another 13 months behind bars.

Craggs, who was 18 at the time of the shooting, pleaded guilty in December to being an accessory after the fact to murder.

The 17-year-old male victim was gunned down in the driveway of a River Ridge home in the city's south end.

Craggs admitted to being the getaway driver for two people, where one of them allegedly opened fire on the victim.

Two 17-year-old males have been charged with first-degree murder, and one of them has pleaded guilty.

That individual has a court date on July 20.
