Written by

ROQUE BLUFFS - A Roque Bluffs man will spend 30 days in jail in connection with a crash that killed his 11-year-old daughter in December of 2017.

Authorities said Christopher Stevenson, 47, was intoxicated when he drove off the road in Cathance Township and hit a tree.

 

Stevenson used an Alford Plea to plead guilty to manslaughter and domestic violence reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon.

 

That means he does not have to admit to the crime but he believes there is enough evidence to convict him.

 

Stevenson was also sentenced to four years of probation after he serves his 30-day jail sentence.
