(6/28/13) A Sparta man has been sentenced to five years in prison for causing a drunk driving crash that killed his brother.
27-year-old Jason Schodeberg must also spend five years under extended supervision, after his conviction for homicide by drunk driving. His 33-year-old brother Glenn Schodeberg was killed in a car that overturned in Monroe County in July of 2009. Prosecutors said Jason could not remember who was driving at the time. Authorities said he ran from the crash scene, and denied that he was ever involved. His ex-girlfriend later told investigators that he admitted driving drunk and crashing the car. Officials said Schodeberg had drug and alcohol addictions that resulted in a long criminal record. He told a judge that he's ready to deal with his addictions.
