Email News Alerts

A tearful teenager was sentenced Monday to seven days in jail in the 2009 death of a Park Rapids motorcyclist, and she was ordered to begin serving her sentence on the anniversary of his death.


Brittany Ann Sayler, 19, entered into a plea bargain that resulted in her pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge of failure to yield the right-of-way. A second misdemeanor charge of careless driving was dismissed in the April 2009 death of 42-year-old John Kisner.
