In a hearing packed with tears and apologies, Louis Bargy was sentenced to jail on Monday in the death of Michael Jones.
He will serve six months in jail and five years on probation.
Bargy was convicted in August of criminally negligent homicide, initiating a false report and tampering with evidence. It took the jury eight hours to come back with the verdict.
As the hearing began, Teresa Jones, the victim’s mother, took the stand.
Reading from a prepared that shook as she held it her trembling hands, Jones didn’t mince words.
