GERING, Neb. (AP) - A September sentencing has been scheduled for a 22-year-old Mitchell man who made a plea deal in a Scotts Bluff County crash death case.

Court records say Michael Fiscus pleaded no contest and was convicted last week of misdemeanor vehicular homicide. Prosecutors had lowered the charge in exchange for Fiscus’ plea. His sentencing is set for Sept. 21.

Prosecutors say Fiscus caused the death of 36-year-old Seth Thompson, of Gering.

Thompson died in September 2014 after being injured in the Dec. 20, 2013, accident. Scotts Bluff County authorities say Fiscus didn’t halt at a stop sign as he drove west on a county road, and his vehicle struck a northbound vehicle driven by Dustin Beaudette, of Scottsbluff. Thompson was a passenger in Beaudette’s vehicle.
