Convicted: 200 goats starved to death
Sentence: In the plea agreement, the Phillips County Attorney has agreed to recommend a six-year deferred sentence under the supervision of the MT Department of Corrections.

This week's sentence calls for six years probation and $17,000 in restitution.
$11,000 will go to the owner of the goats, and $6,000 will go to the property owner.
