NORTH PLATTE, Nebraska — Two men have been convicted of procuring alcohol for a 17-year-old who officials say died in November 2013 of acute ethanol intoxication in North Platte.

Police say a friend of Chandler Snyder found the body in a camper trailer and reported that Snyder had been drinking heavily with other friends the night before.

Court records say 20-year-old Logan Johnston pleaded no contest on Monday to misdemeanor procuring alcohol for a minor and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The records also say 28-year-old Martin Hanson pleaded no contest to the same charges and to negligent child abuse. Prosecutors had lowered the procuring charges from felonies for both men in exchange for their pleas.

Both are scheduled to be sentenced on June 8.
