A man suspected of trying to break into two safes at Wyoming Downs in late December has pleaded guilty to attempted burglary.

The charge against Devon Jade Duane Tutor, 31, was reduced from aggravated burglary as part of a plea agreement in which a felony charge of possessing burglary tools also was dismissed. Prosecutors will recommend a three- to five-year prison sentence, suspended in favor of a 15-day split sentence in county jail and then three years of supervised probation.

15 days for burglary, sounds far! I’m guessing when he starts burglarizing residential homes the county attorney will bargain to 20 days!

Obviously we need a real County Attorney. One that doesn't plea down to such low sentences that they do not constitute a deterrent to further criminal activity. The County Commissioners made a major mistake appointing a public defender to the County Attorney position. We need a new County Attorney and new Commissioners.
