An Omaha man accused of driving a boat that led to the death of a woman has been given probation and jail time.
Twenty-two-year-old Sean Salisbury was sentenced Wednesday to two years of probation and three weekends in jail in connection with the death of 21-year-old Mickayla Linn. He also was given community service.
Salisbury was driving a boat at Woodcliff Lakes near Fremont in July when he got too close to the docks. Police say he turned the boat sharply, causing an attached inner tube with Linn on it to slam into one of the docks. She later died at a hospital.
A manslaughter charge against Salisbury was dropped because prosecutors say he was not drunk and had no previous criminal history.
