Sheridan, WY (AP) - A former Sheridan probation and parole officer has accepted a plea agreement with the 4th Judicial District Court that would keep him from serving time for having an inappropriate sexual relationship with a woman he had supervised.
Chris Yager signed an agreement Wednesday to serve two years of supervised probation instead of one and a half to three years in prison.
According to the Sheridan Press, Yager initially pleaded not guilty to the felony charge of sexual assault. He was charged last August after a female he formerly supervised came forward and said she had a five-month sexual relationship with Yager.
The woman told police she had attempted to end the relationship, but Yager continued making advances.
