RAPID CITY (AP) — A Box Elder man who pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide will serve 180 days in jail and probation.
Thirty-one-year-old Jason Soldwisch admitted he was intoxicated and driving at speeds estimated at 100 miles per hour when his vehicle crashed last August in Rapid City. A passenger, 31-year-old Jason Burke of Rockerville, was killed.
The media reports that Seventh Circuit Court Judge Wally Eklund sentenced Soldwisch to 180 days in jail and seven years on probation under the terms of a 10-year suspended prison sentence.
Burke's father Douglas Burke was one of several people who asked the judge not to send Soldwisch to prison.
