Former Lincoln County Commissioner Sentenced
Lincoln County, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) Former Lincoln County Commissioner Jay Loesche was sentenced today on theft charges.
According to court records, Loesche will escape jail time and instead serve two years probation.
A plea deal was made to amend the charges from grand theft to petit theft.
This stems from an investigation that revealed he took just over $1,000 from the City of Shoshone and the Rural Fire Department.
A Lincoln County judge sentenced him to 180 days in jail, then suspended that sentence.
