Australian to be sentenced in Hawaii water crash

HONOLULU (AP) - The Australian tourist who pleaded no contest to third-degree negligent homicide in a Hawaii personal watercraft crash that killed a California teen is expected to be sentenced.

Tyson Dagley entered the plea to the misdemeanor charge last month and is to be sentenced Wednesday. He faces up to a year in prison and a $2,000 fine.

Investigators say 20-year-old Dagley was standing on his rented watercraft before it hit 16-year-old Kristen Fonseca's watercraft from behind Aug. 5. They say he was looking at his girlfriend, who was taking video and photos, and he wasn't paying attention to where he was going.

The Vacaville, Calif. teen died the next day.

Her stepfather and mother are planning to attend the sentencing.
