FARGO - As part of his punishment for drinking and driving, the Fargo man was given a choice: attend the funeral of a West Fargo family killed by a drunken driver heading the wrong way on Interstate 94 or serve five more days in jail.


He chose the funeral, and the next day he penned a letter to the court describing its effect on him.

"It made me sick to my stomach 4 lives were taken when they had a lifetime they never got," he wrote.
