Woman who struck, killed motorcyclist gets 13 daysAug 31, 2016 By Ben Neary, The Associated Press
GILLETTE (AP) -- A woman charged with crashing into a motorcyclist in Gillette and causing injuries that later killed the man has been ordered to serve 13 days in jail.
Merri Stetter was sentenced to one year in jail. But a judge suspended 350 days of the sentence and gave her credit for two days served.
Stetter had been driving a pickup truck when she struck Steve Augerot on his motorcycle in July 2015.
Augerot suffered severe injuries and was taken to a hospital, where he later died.
Stetter's attorney argued that the crash was "a tragic accident."
But a judge declined to let Stetter go without jail time, citing the woman's history of driving violations and the fact that she left the scene of the crime.
