February 27, 2017

BEMIDJI -- A Bemidji man whose 2-year-old foster daughter drowned after he left her in the shower received the maximum sentence for second-degree manslaughter Friday.

Nathan Daniel Jackson, 39, received a four-year-nine month sentence, despite requests by his attorney, public defender Heather Labat, to sentence him only to probation. Jackson will receive credit for the 264 days he has already spent in the Beltrami County Jail.
