USD student gets plea deal in manslaughter case

Posted:

A judge has decided that a University of South Dakota student who was speeding on his motorcycle when he hit and killed a pedestrian in Sioux Falls last year will spend just 30 days in jail.

Twenty-one-year-old Daniel Richards pleaded guilty to second-degree manslaughter in a deal that kept him out of prison and could remove the charge from his record with a year of good behavior.

Richards, a Sioux Falls native, was riding his motorcycle in September 2011 when he struck 56-year-old Maralee Chrans, who was crossing a street with her dog.   She and her dog were killed.
