BLACKFOOT — Magistrate Judge Charles Roos sentenced the first of the five individuals charged from incidents stemming from criminal activities that occurred last year while the five were athletes on the basketball team at Blackfoot High School.
Tyson Katseanes entered a plea of guilty to an amended charge of misdemeanor battery Thursday morning. Roos sentenced Katseanes to 30 days suspended jail and one overnight stay in the Bingham County jail. The 30 days in jail will be withheld if Katseanes abides by the terms and conditions of the agreement.
Katseanes was also sentenced to six months probation, 40 hours of community service and must pay court costs and a $100 fine.
Katseanes can appeal Roos decision within 42 days. If Katseanes does not violate the law within the next year, the record will show the charge as dismissed.
The four remaining defendants will appear in court before Roos Feb. 1 if agreements cannot be reached in their cases.
