SIOUX FALLS, SD -
A South Dakota man accused of driving drunk in a fatal crash has been sentenced for involuntary manslaughter.
U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says 34-year-old Jeff Cadotte Jr. of Wakpala pleaded guilty to the charge in August and was sentenced this week to two years and nine months in custody, to be followed by three years of supervised release.
Authorities say Cadotte was drunk when he lost control of his pickup truck on Feb. 23 and it rolled near Wakpala. The crash killed 27-year-old passenger Cari Hill.
