Two families filled a Hubbard County courtroom with tears late Monday as the son of one was sentenced to a year in jail for killing the daughter of the other in an ATV crash.


"I apologize for the wrong decisions I made May 1," a tearful Chad Tabaka told the family of Jessica Christopherson.

"I can't take it back. Jess was my friend and I never intended for this to happen."
