A South Dakota man has been sentenced to more than two years in prison for involuntary manslaughter.
U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson announced Friday that 38-year-old Mark Clairmont, of Norris, was sentenced to two years and nine months in prison. Clairmont pleaded guilty to the charge in June.
Prosecutors say Clairmont was driving drunk in February 2012 when he lost control of his vehicle and it rolled. A passenger in the car was ejected and died. Clairmont's blood-alcohol content level was .281, more than three times the legal limit for driving, two hours after the crash.
