A 24-year-old man who drove through a Sioux Falls' woman's house at nearly 70 miles per hour this summer, destroying her living room and killing her Jack Russell terrier has been sentenced to 14 months in jail.
Chad Alan Garner must serve at least seven months without work release.
Garner pleaded guilty to a charge of third-offense driving under the influence and hit-and-run for the June 23 wreck into the home belonging to a Sioux Falls woman. The woman's 8-year-old dog Jack was thrown across the living room and buried under rubble after the crash.
Police found Garner a few blocks away. His blood alcohol content level was .22 - nearly three times the legal limit to drive.
