Krone Proposes Plea Agreement
Written by Andrew-Rossi on July 18, 2017
A plea agreement has been proposed in the case of former Park County deputy attorney Sam Krone.
Presiding Judge Marvin Tyler of Pinedale will be considering the agreement between Krone and the Wyoming Attorney General’s Office, which proposes that Krone would serve 15 days in jail, followed by 20 days of house arrest, for two of the seven charges that he is facing.
Krone was charged last July with three felonies and four misdemeanors for allegedly embezzling over $9600 from the Park County Bar Association while he was treasurer between 2010 and 2013. According to information acquired by the Cody Enterprise, the plea agreement proposes that all but one felony larceny and one misdemeanor theft charge be dropped, and that all the money be paid back in full to the Bar Association. The agreement also requires Krone to release a public statement admitting his guilt in the matter.
Krone’s legal issues surfaced in February of last year, when Krone was fired from the County Attorney’s Office, where he had worked for twelve years, for sending inappropriate text messages to a woman who had been charged with drunk driving and was being prosecuted by the Park County Attorney’s Office.
