Ink Master star Daniel Silva sentenced over killing of YouTuber Corey La Barrie

Ink Master star Daniel Silva has been sentenced over the killing of YouTuber Corey La Barrie.

Silva has reportedly been sentenced to four years in prison, although the sentence has been suspended. He’s set to spend 365 days in county jail with 216 days of credit.

He has also been sentenced to five years of probation and 250 hours of community service, according to TMZ.

His attorney, Mike Cavalluzzi, told the site that he believes the sentence is fair, and added: ‘It’s important to Daniel to work with Corey’s family to make sure the memory of his friend is never forgotten.’

Silva previously pled ‘no contest’ after being charged with La Barrie’s murder.

La Barrie tragically died in a car crash on his 25th birthday on May 10 when he was a passenger.

News of Silva’s arrest emerged on May 12, with LAPD confirming this in a statement, explaining a 2020 McLaren 600LT was traveling eastbound on Huston Street ‘at a high rate of speed when the driver lost control. 

‘Driver then ran off the road and collided with a stop sign and a tree on the northeast corner of Huston Street and Carpenter Avenue.’ 

According to authorities, Silva tried to flee: ‘The driver of the McLaren exited the vehicle and attempted to leave the scene but was stopped by citizen who came to render aid. No other vehicles were involved in the collision.’

Both La Barrie and Silva were taken to a local hospital for treatment, however the YouTuber succumbed to his injuries. His death was confirmed by his family, with his mother sharing a heartbreaking tribute.

‘My heart breaks right now, on my sons 25 birthday today… The accident killed him instantly,’ she began. ‘No words can describe the sadness I feel in loosening a child. It just feels so unreal and I’m overwhelmed with grief. 

‘I love you so much Corey and will miss you so so much. It’s just so unfair (sic).’

Metro.co.uk has contacted the LA District Attorney and LA Superior Court for comment.
