A former Montpelier police officer convicted of battery learned his fate Friday morning.
A Bear Lake County judge sentenced Kevin Buttars to 90 days in jail for using excessive force during the arrest of Jared Finley.
You'll recall, Finley accused Buttars of verbal abuse and said that Buttars also simulated sodomy on him.
A jury convicted Buttars of misdemeanor battery on January 25th. The judge suspended part of Buttars' sentence, meaning he'll only spend 15 days in jail.
Following his jail time, Buttars will be placed on probation for one year. He'll also have to pay a $500 dollar fine.
During his jail time, Buttars will be allowed work release five days a week as he's trying to start up a new mechanics business.
NBC Newschannel 6 reporter, Ashli Kimenker, traveled to Bear Lake County for the sentencing. She'll have much more coming up tonight at six.
