— A liquor store clerk pleaded no contest to selling alcohol to a minor who later died in a traffic accident, court officials said Friday.

Stacey Leann Dixon, 47, of Afton, entered the plea Thursday in Delaware County District Court to furnishing alcohol to someone younger than 21.

Sentencing is set for Nov. 5, according to the district attorney's office.

Dixon, a clerk at Woodshed Liquor Store in Afton, sold vodka to 17-year-old Colton Kerns on April 19, 2011.

The teen died the next day in a single-vehicle crash. An autopsy report showed Kern's blood-alcohol level registered .13. The legal limit for driving in Oklahoma is .08.

Donna Kerns said the family attended Thursday's hearing. She declined to comment other than to tearfully say, “I want my son back.”

Dixon is seen on store surveillance video selling alcohol to Kerns without checking an ID to verify his age, records show. Kerns is seen on surveillance video recordings purchasing alcohol several times, and his identification was never checked, records state.
