"I just want them to know that I am very sorry," he said through sobs. "I froze, and I was terrified. I didn’t know what to do. I wish now that I could go back and provide some kind of help for Mr. Yazzie."
As part of Karr’s probation, he must complete 200 hours of community service and attend anger-management and drug-therapy sessions.
The judge ordered the probation to be "zero tolerance," meaning any violation will result in Karr being sent to prison to start a one-to-15-year prison term.
