jenrgw Unusual Sentence for Man Convicted of Vehicular Homicide

Last week, a Georgia man pleaded guilty to two counts of second degree homicide by vehicle.  According to reports of the accident, the man was distracted by his cell phone when he got on a Georgia highway and collided with another vehicle killing a 7 year old boy and a 33 year old man.

As a result of his plea, the driver received a rather standard sentence of 24 months probation and a $2,000 fine. However, the District Attorney also recommended an unusual part of the sentence that the court approved.  The driver will be speaking at three North Georgia high schools in Murray and Gilmer Counties.  He will be talking to the students about the dangers of distracted driving.

What do you think about this sentence?  Will it be effective in preventing future Georgia distracted driving accidents?
