A Minneapolis man has learned his fate after pleading guilty in December to criminal vehicular homicide. 

Bobby Brookins, 34, was sentenced Thursday to over four years (57 months) in prison at the Minnesota Correctional Facility in St. Cloud.

Brookins pleaded guilty to a count of criminal vehicular homicide, admitting to drunken driving when he hit a 16-year-old skateboarder last June.
