RENO, Nev. (KRNV & -- Andrew Weist, the man who pled guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the death of a security guard at Sierra Nevada Job Corps., has been sentenced to 1-4 years in prison as a result of his failure to complete three separate drug-court programs, according to Chief Deputy District Attorney Bruce Hahn.

Hahn says Judge Steven Elliott ordered Weist to complete a court program aimed at curbing Weist's drug habits last year. If Weist was successful in completing the program, his felony conviction would be dropped.

Weist was arrested and charged with one count of involuntary manslaughter, two counts of battery and one count of minor in consumption when Daniel Hundson, 63, of Reno attempted to detain him and died of a heart attack in 2011.
