Daniel Darwin Orders, age 32, entered a guilty plea Friday morning to two counts of lewd conduct with a child under 16 and one count of rape with a female under 16. He appeared before District Judge David Nye.
Orders resigned his position as an adult probation officer with Bingham County at the time the charges were filed.
There are actually two cases against Orders. The first was filed in 2011. In this case, Orders admitted to two actions of lewd contact with a minor child, age 14.
Blackfoot School District 55 has announced the names of 15 community members, selected by the board, put on the committee to help select a new superintendent. That person will replace Scott Crane, who resigned last spring.
School district trustees Mary Jo Marlow and Jenny Hong head the committee. They will conduct a series of public meetings in each of the five zones in the coming months, giving everyone an opportunity to have an input in the selection process.
Blackfoot Police arrested two Bannock County residents following a high-speed chase on Friday.
Officers arrested Daniel R. Wallace, 34, of Chubbuck and Kylee R. Borjas-Black, 23 of Pocatello after they fled on foot following a crash about milepost 99 on U.S. Highway 91. Idaho State Police troopers investigated that crash which occurred about 5:44 p.m.
A BPD officer was in pursuit of Wallace's 2003 Pontiac Grand Am when a second officer spiked Wallace's tires. Wallace lost control and struck a 2005 Kia Spectra driven by David J. Contreras, 17, of Blackfoot.
