A man has pleaded no contest to charges in connection to a crash that put a McPherson teacher in a coma.

Jeffrey Davis entered a no contest plea to aggravated battery while driving under the influence last week. Investigators said Davis crossed the center line and struck a car Mija Stockman was driving in December.

The crash fractured Stockman's skull, causing her brain to swell. She is receiving treatment in a Nebraska rehab facility, where her family said she is making progress in speech and physical therapy.

The court found Davis guilty of aggravated battery while driving under the influence.

Prosecutors dropped other charges against Davis as part of the plea deal. He will return to court next month for sentencing.
