ROCHESTER, Minn. – A guilty plea after a drunken crash results in jail and a fine.

Gredyn Michael Hatton-Kirkpatrick, 21 of Rochester, was arrested on June 15 after deputies say he crashed his car in the 3600 block of 48th Street NE when the road changed from pavement to gravel.

A 16-year-old passenger suffered injuries in the crash.

Hatton-Kirkpatrick pleaded guilty Thursday to criminal vehicular operation. Two counts of DWI and driving after suspension were dismissed.

He’s been sentenced to 11 days in the Olmsted County Adult Detention Center, to be served as work release, 30 days of electronic home monitoring, and a $900 fine.
