Bill Janklow, the former South Dakota governor and congressman, is sentenced to 100 days in jail for his role in a car accident that killed a motorcyclist. Janklow will spend some of the time outside the jail doing community service work. He will also pay a $5,000 fine and serve three years' probation. Janklow resigned from Congress following his manslaughter conviction in December. Hear Curt Nickish of South Dakota Public Radio.
