Harris Gets Maximum Sentence

Harris Gets Maximum Sentence
DE SMET, SD -

A Minnesota man who admits to driving drunk when he hit and killed a 16-year-old boy is sentenced to 10 years in prison.

A judge gave 28-year-old James Harris the maximum sentence in a Kingsbury County courtroom on Tuesday. 

Harris pleaded guilty to second-degree manslaughter and driving drunk following the deadly crash in September. 

On Tuesday, prosecutors said that Harris admitted to blacking out after stopping at a couple of bars.  He was on his way to his girlfriend's house when he ran a stop sign and hit 16-year-old Zach Eichstadt, who was walking with his brother on the sidewalk.  

Harris apologized to Eichstadt's family during the sentencing. 

KELOLAND's Ben Dunsmoor was in the courtroom.  Tune into KELOLAND News at 5 and 6 for live reports from De Smet.
