Wisconsin inmate given $19,000 from 35W bridge collapse fund
A Wisconsin inmate, who was convicted of injuring his former fiance's 2-year-old daughter, gets $19,000 from the bridge collapse victim's fund, according to KARE 11.
Michael E. Stoner, 27, of Spooner, Wisc. was with his then-fiance to see the girl he is charged with hurting when the bridge collapsed, according to KARE 11.
He was sentenced to more than seven years in prison, according to KARE 11.
A prison spokesman said that the terms of Stoner's sentence require him to turn over any money from the bridge fund to the state to pay for fines and restitution, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
The girl's mother, Crystal Manning, was not charged for her daughter's injuries and will receive $488,000 from the bridge collapse victims fund, KARE 11 reported.
