SD man sentenced to month in jail for fatal crash

Posted: Updated:

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A judge has decided that a University of South Dakota student who was speeding on his motorcycle when he hit and killed a pedestrian in Sioux Falls last year will spend 30 days in jail. 

Daniel John Richards, 21, pleaded guilty to second-degree manslaughter in a deal that kept him out of prison and could remove the charge from his record with a year of good behavior. 

Richards, a Sioux Falls native, was riding his motorcycle in September 2011 when he struck 56-year-old Maralee A. Chrans, who was crossing a street with her dog. She and her dog were killed. Richards was injured when he was thrown from his motorcycle.
