32-year old Neil Walton of Lisbon pleaded guilty to reckless driving in connection with the April crash. Authorities say Walton failed to see a stop sign on Highway 18 and collided with a motorcycle driven by Rob and Deb Baumbach.
Family members pleaded for more jail time. Prosecutors had asked for 180-days, but the judge says the tragic accident could've happened to anyone and didn't call for more time behind bars.
Walton will also be on probation for 1½ years and is required to do 50 hours of community service.
