RAPID CITY, SD -
A Rapid City man accused in a hit-and-run death at last year's Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in western South Dakota has been sentenced to serve seven years in prison.
Thirty-four-year-old Robert Pittman late last year pleaded guilty to second-degree manslaughter in the death of 44-year-old Brian Bye, of Lincoln, Neb. Authorities say Pittman plowed into the back of Bye's motorcycle on state Highway 79 near Bear Butte on Aug. 10 and fled. He was arrested two days later.
Pittman also has been ordered to pay more than $4,500 in restitution to Bye's family.
