Osage, Iowa (AP) – A man has been given probation for supplying alcohol to a 19-year-old woman who authorities say was drunk when her vehicle hit a tree, killing her.
Mitchell County District Court records say 22-year-old Justin Slaichert, of St. Ansgar, was sentenced Tuesday to two to three years of probation, fined $625 and given a suspended two-year prison term.
Authorities say Slaichert’s girlfriend, 19-year-old Hanna Pfeifer, died Jan. 6 in St. Ansgar. Court documents say Slaichert told officers he’d bought three beers for Pfeifer.
He pleaded guilty to misdemeanor supplying alcohol to person under legal age, serious injury, after prosecutors lowered the charge from a felony count.
