Jury Finds Rivetts Guilty

ST. CLOUD – A Stearns County jury has convicted 44-year-old Eugene Rivetts on two counts of Criminal Vehicular Homicide.

In August of 2009 his hummer crashed into a car near Opole killing 19-year-old Ryan DeZurik.

Rivetts wasn’t charged initially. Another occupant in the vehicle, Timothy Rausch of Cushing, told authorities he was driving the SUV when he swerved to avoid hitting a deer, but forensic evidence from the driver’s side showed Rivetts was really the driver. Rivetts admitted he had been drinking throughout the day. But, his blood alcohol level was never measured because Rivetts said he wasn’t driving.
