GERING, Neb. (AP) - A 22-year-old Mitchell man has been given two years of probation for the crash death of a Gering resident.

Michael Fiscus was sentenced on Monday in Scotts Bluff County Court. He’d pleaded no contest and was convicted of misdemeanor vehicular homicide. Prosecutors had lowered the charge in exchange for Fiscus’ plea.

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