CACHE GUNMAN GETS 1-YEAR JAIL SENTENCE

SHARE CACHE GUNMAN GETS 1-YEAR JAIL SENTENCE

An Avon, Cache County, man who shot up a Logan police officer's house in April has been sentenced to a year in jail.

"I think the court verbalized this in the McDonald case that drive-by shootings are not to be tolerated," said 1st District Judge Clint S. Judkins Monday in sentencing David Yeoman, 29.As he had done with Yeoman's co-defendant, Brent McDonald, Judkins rejected a plea agreement that would have allowed Yeoman to be sentenced on a class A misdemeanor.

Instead, he suspended a sentence of up to five years in the Utah State Prison and ordered Yeoman to serve a year in the Cache County Jail and pay a $2,000 fine. McDonald was given the same sentence two weeks ago.

On April 8, Yeoman and McDonald drove by the Logan home of police Sgt. James Geier and fired about seven rounds into his house, garage, and unmarked police car with McDonald's Makarov handgun. No one was injured.

Yeoman fired the shots because he said he was angry that the state was garnishing his wages.
