EX-DEPUTY GETS INFORMAL PROBATION

A former Cache County deputy sheriff again convicted during retrial on 1992 misdemeanor lewdness counts will receive credit for time already served and be placed on informal probation.

During a sentencing hearing last week, 1st Circuit Judge Clint Judkins also fined Barry Snyder $1,050 and ordered him to complete counseling. The judge said the yearlong probationary period would not include court appearances as long as Snyder's record remains clean.Three years ago, Snyder was convicted of exposing himself to two girls. However, the Utah Court of Appeals ordered a retrial due to ineffective counsel and because Snyder had not properly been notified of his constitutional rights.

Snyder had already served 20 days in jail and completed 40 hours of community service by the time of his second trial in June. However, he had not completed court-ordered counseling or paid fines and restitution.

Judkins denied defense attorney Robert Lord's motion for dismissal of the jury's verdict and an argument that the court lacked jurisdiction because Snyder had al-ready finished an earlier probationary period.
