Michigan man gets six-month jail sentence in ATV death

Andrew Koster

A Michigan man charged in the death of a Quincy woman is now headed to jail.

Andrew Koster, 31, pleaded guilty Sept. 19 to aggravated driving under the influence in the September 2012 crash that killed 25-year-old Sarah Birsic. The crash took place at Golden Triangle Whitetails, an outfitter located at 2950 N. 920th Place in Clayton.

As part of the plea agreement, charges of reckless homicide and aggravated reckless driving were dismissed.

Circuit Judge Alesia McMillen sentenced Koster Thursday to 182 days in jail. Koster can serve the sentence periodically. McMillen also sentenced him to 24 months probation and ordered him to pay more than $3,500 in court fees and costs.

Koster has credit for serving one day in jail.
