The son of the Geneva County Superintendent has been granted youthful offender status is the case of a June 20201 crash that killed a 70-year-old woman. The judge granted the status earlier this month following an appeal by William Birdsong’s family.  The ruling means Birdsong will have a trial by judge, not a jury and the verdict will not be public record.
