OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A 22-year-old Fremont man has been given two days in jail and two years of probation for vehicular homicide.
Online court records say Kyle Swatzell was sentenced on Thursday in Douglas County Court. He’d pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor charge.
Authorities say Swatzell was driving a semitrailer on Nebraska Highway 36 on Sept. 11 last year when he ran a stop sign and hit a sport utility vehicle, killing its driver, 36-year-old Ryan Boelman, of Bennington.
Swatzell’s two days of jail are to be served on Sept. 11 this year and next year. He was fined $1,000 and must perform 100 hours of community service. Judge Sheryl Lohaus also revoked Swatzell’s license for two years.
