(CBS) — There was a guilty plea today from the father of a 15-year-old girl who was behind the wheel in last summer’s crash in the Poconos that killed three Bucks County teenagers.

Michael Ware, 54, pleaded guilty to three counts of involuntary manslaughter and three counts of recklessly endangering another person -– all misdemeanors.

Authorities say Ware allowed his daughter to take his Chevy Suburban to drive five friends to breakfast on August 30th, 2014, in Paupack Township (Wayne County), Pa.  The girl lost control of the SUV on Goose Pond Road and it flipped several times, killing Council Rock South students Cullen Keffer, Ryan Lesher, and Shamus Digney.

Ware will be sentenced on August 20th.
