Thirty-year-old Koleman Gourneau, of Belcourt, was sentenced to serve four years and nine months behind bars and another three years on supervised release. He pleaded guilty last September to a charge of involuntary manslaughter.
U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon says Gourneau hit a woman after leaving a bar west of Belcourt on Oct. 12, 2011, causing fatal injuries.
