Zane Fees, 18, willingly turned himself in on charges related to the accident, according to Alvin Pahlke, the Jackson County State's Attorney. After the initial charges, Fees was released on a personal recognizance bond. Fees was scheduled to make his next court appearance June 7th at the Jackson County Courthouse in Kadoka. The sentencing was postponed until August 31 in Pierre.
The South Dakota Sixth Judicial Circuit Court has handed down an Order Suspending Imposition of Sentence, which is a withholding of the finding of guilt until a later date.
