OGALLALA, Neb. — A 38-year-old Colorado man has been given jail time and probation for a fatal boating accident in western Nebraska.

North Platte television station KNOP says (http://bit.ly/Uf9BUt ) Andrew Schmidt, of Castle Rock, Colorado, last week was given 180 days in jail and three years of probation. He also must pay more than $7,200 in restitution. Schmidt had pleaded no contest to attempted manslaughter. Prosecutors had lowered the charge and dropped four others in return for Schmidt's plea.

Prosecutors say Schmidt's personal watercraft ran into and landed inside a boat on Sept. 2, 2012, at Lake McConaughy (muh-KAHN'-uh-hay). The collision fatally injured 64-year-old Richard Caroselli, of Brighton, Colorado, and injured three others on the boat.
