The former Wagner police chief accused of covering up his girlfriend's methamphetamine was sentenced Friday.
Attorney General Marty Jackley said that 44-year-old James Chaney was sentenced to 180 days in jail and a $1,000 fine on one count of misprision of a felony, which is a Class 1 misdemeanor. Jackley says the sentence was suspended on the conditions that Chaney complete 120 hours of community service in the next four months.
Prosecutors said Chaney tried to cover up his girlfriend's meth use by hiding her used needles in his office.
