RAPID CITY, S.D. — A SD teen will serve two concurrent one-year jail sentences for spitting on an EMT who was trying to treat him at the scene of an accident last Feb.
Trey Wright, 19, crashed his vehicle on Feb. 18, 2012 and when responders arrived, he became combative and spit on the EMT, according to the Rapid City Journal. Wright pleaded guilty to driving under the influence, sliming and simple assault.
Under state supervision at the time of the incident, Wright is now serving a 345-day sentence in connection with another incident and after that sentence expires in May he will remain in custody to serve his new sentence.
Circuit Judge Jeff Davis warned Wright, who is on work release, that if he violates the conditions of his sentence he will go to prison.
