Former Wagner Police Chief Sentenced to 120 Community Service

Posted: Updated:

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The former Wagner police chief accused of covering up his girlfriend's methamphetamine use was sentenced Friday to 120 days of community service. 

Attorney General Marty Jackley says 44-year-old James Chaney a 180-day jail sentence and a $1,000 fine was suspended on the condition he completes the community service work within the next four months. 

Prosecutors say Chaney tried to cover up his girlfriend's meth use by hiding her used needles in his office. He pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of failing to report a crime. 

Chaney resigned from his position as Wagner police chief in early August.
