Muskegon County District Judge Andrew Wierengo III on Friday gave 33-year-old Jeremy Griffin six months’ probation and 60 hours of community service.
Griffin pleaded no contest Dec. 22 to a moving violation causing death, a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail.
Corey McNett was standing along the side of a highway and behind his vehicle when he was struck Feb. 13, 2011.
Last month, a judge approved a $1 million settlement that ended a lawsuit filed by McNett’s family against the landscaping business that owned the truck.
A prosecutor had sought jail time for Griffin. Wierengo said jail would serve no purpose.
