An Oklahoma judge's unusual sentence for a teenager has a lot of people talking.

Last week - the 17-year-old boy - pleaded guilty to manslaughter and underage drinking charges.

He was behind the wheel - last December - when he crashed his truck into a tree.
The accident killed a 16-year-old boy riding with him.

In court last week - a judge said it would be a waste to lose two lives - so he ordered the teen to attend church services for the next ten years as part of his probation.
