Mancha is due to be sentenced on March 21.

The crash happened on June 12, 2015 on Douglas Avenue near VanDyke Street in Holland Township. Police say Mancha crossed the centerline and struck Kronemeyer’s car. Kronemeyer, 18, died at the scene. Mancha was formally charged in December.

Mancha’s license was suspended in September 2014. A few weeks before the crash that killed Kronemeyer, he pleaded guilty to causing a separate crash while driving on a suspended license.
