A Lewes man, Shawn Armstrong, has plead no contest to a charge of inattentive driving in the September 2017 crash that resulted in the death of Delmarva media magnate Thomas Draper.

Armstrong, 38, will pay a $50 fine and court costs totaling $312 and must complete 50 hours of community service. Armstrong was also charged with operating a vehicle causing death, but not be pursued as long as Armstrong completes his community service requirement, which Deputy Attorney General Nichole Gannett said was requested by the Draper family. Armstrong has one year to complete his service.
