Scott Rioux, who was charged with child endangerment and providing ammunition to minors that resulted in the death of a teenager last year, was sentenced to 50 hours community service. Most of that time will be spent helping to teach others about gun safety.

Rioux pleaded no contest to the charges in order to avoid dragging family and friends into a public court scene. Rioux’s son Cody, who was 14 at the time, accidentally shot and killed his friend Joshua Sawyer last March.
