A year ago, Clarence Helgevold Jr. was drunk when he got behind the wheel. His actions led to the death of George Larion.On Wednesday, Helgevold, 60, was sentenced to eight years with three and a half suspended for criminally negligent homicide, and one year with six months suspended for misdemeanor driving under the influence. He will serve five years in prison.Helgevold changed his plea to guilty last May, reducing the original charge of manslaughter, which would’ve imposed a longer jail sentence.The original charges stem from a Jan. 19, 2010 incident in which Helgevold hit the 46-year-old Larion’s snowmachine with his car. Larion was thrown from the snowmachine and died from his injuries on-scene, near the intersection of Brown’s Lake Road and Seclusion Street off of Funny River Road.
