ARCADIA, Fla. — A DeSoto County teen has been found guilty in the crash that killed a 4-year-old girl and injured a 5-year-old at a daycare in March of 2022.

Investigators say 18-year-old Kiara Morant was driving without a license when she crashed into the Imagination Station daycare.

Tuesday, she was found guilty on two counts of driving without a license and for a crash involving serious injury or death. Morant was sentenced to 122.85 months Department of Corrections, plus court costs/cost of prosecution.

Last March, Morant plead not guilty to the charges.
