GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - An Arvilla man convicted of misdemeanor aggravated reckless driving in an incident that severely injured a member of the University of North Dakota women’s hockey team has been sentenced to about four months in jail.

Nineteen-year-old Tristen Johnson was accused of striking UND player Lisa Marvin while she was trying to fill her stalled pickup with gas on a Grand Forks street last November. Marvin, of Warroad, Minnesota, suffered injuries that prevented her from playing and have put her hockey future in doubt.

Johnson on Monday was ordered to spend 126 days behind bars, and to pay restitution that will be determined later. He also must pay $300 in court fees. About eight months of jail time is suspended, and he will be on unsupervised probation for one year.
