RED WING, Minn. (AP) — A rural Kenyon man has been sentenced to a year in jail for a drunken driving crash that killed a former high school wrestling star.
Twenty-year-old Chad Lexvold will be on probation for 10 years. The judge also ordered Lexvold to give at least three talks a year about the dangers of drinking and driving.
Lexvold repeatedly apologized in court Monday to the family of 19-year-old fellow wrestler Jacob Baalson. Baalson, a former Kenyon-Wanamingo High School wrestling star, was killed in the crash on March 19, 2011.
The Post-Bulletin of Rochester (http://bit.ly/LoVZun) reports Lexvold entered a Norgaard plea last December. A Norgaard plea means a defendant acknowledges guilt but can't recall the facts because he was intoxicated.
Baalson and Lexvold wrestled on the 2010 Kenyon-Wanamingo team.
