Daniel Silva of “Ink Master” fame has entered a plea of no contest in the case of YouTube star Corey La Berrie’s death.
The announcement was made on Wednesday by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office via a press release.
Silva, 27, had been charged with one felony count of gross vehicular manslaughter, to which he pleaded no contest on Tuesday, Deputy District Attorney Yasmin Fardghassemi said.

Sentencing for the case is scheduled for August 13. Silva faces up to four years in prison.
La Barrie died on his 25th birthday in May while riding in a car allegedly being driven by Silva, who crashed the vehicle.
Silva was initially charged with murder. He pleaded not guilty to that charge, and that plea was followed by La Barrie’s parents filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the defendant.
