GRAND FORKS, N.D. — An Arvilla man convicted of misdemeanor aggravated reckless driving in an incident that severely injured a member of the University of North Dakota women’s hockey team has been sentenced to about four months in jail.

Tristen Johnson, 19, was accused of striking UND player Lisa Marvin while she was trying to fill her stalled pickup with gas on a Grand Forks street last November. Marvin suffered injuries that prevented her from playing and have put her hockey future in doubt.
