BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A Lame Deer man has been sentenced to three years in federal prison for a drunken driving crash on Interstate 90 south of Hardin that killed his brother-in-law.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1jzd9hv) U.S. District Judge Susan Watters sentenced 31-year-old Joseph Sean Little on Tuesday for the October 2014 death. The victim was identified only by his initials.

Waters also ordered Little to spend six months in a residential re-entry program after leaving prison.

Little said he couldn’t remember anything that happened that day. He pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter.

Court records said Little’s blood-alcohol level was 0.41 percent, just over five times the limit at which a person is considered legally intoxicated.

At the time of the crash, Little was on probation for a drunken driving conviction in Rosebud County.
