Plankinton Teen Sentenced To Jail Time In Shooting

A Plankinton teenager was sentenced yesterday to 150 days in jail for accidentally shooting another teenager in June.  18 year old Logan Evans was sentenced to five years in prison, but will instead serve 30 days in county jail immediately, 30 days in March 2014, 30 days in October 2014, 30 days in March 2015, and 30 days in October 2015.  Evans was traveling to Sioux Falls with Nick Lawson and two other passengers on Interstate 90 in June.  Evans pointed a pistol at Lawson and pulled the trigger as a joke, thinking the gun was not loaded.  A bullet hit Lawson in the chest.  He was airlifted to Sioux Falls, underwent several surgeries, and continues to recover.  Evans pleaded guilty to a charge of aggravated assault.  In addition to the jail time, Evans was ordered to pay over 202,000 dollars in restitution, pay any future medical expenses of Lawson’s, and speak to hunter safety courses about gun safety.
