What Cattle Rustling Gets You These Days

From this post Rustling Still Goes On from just about a year ago Monty Pilgrim (below) was sentenced yesterday in Craig America.
Senior judge David Lass, who presided over the trial, handed down the sentence for the 15 felony counts against Pilgrim.
The sentence included three years of supervised probation; 50 hours of useful community service for each year of probation for a total of 150 hours; letters of apology to the five of nine victims he was convicted; payment of restitution, fines and court costs of more than $14,000; and incarceration of 90 days at the Moffat County Jail. 

I'd say he got off pretty easy considering. 15 felony charges. Make that a few charges with da pot and it's slammer time. Stealing cows may be the way to go.

  1. Maybe it only happened in the movies, but, as I recall, cattle rustlers ended up dangling at the end of a rope.

  7. I would have joined the posse. I rode with Quantrell. Don't like to talk about it.

    1. Seems like we might have to wrastle unless you have left the dark side.

    2. It's ok. Quantrell paid me off because I didn't keep up the subscriptions. He wasn't very nice about it.

  8. His picture is posted.
    If he is smart he will leave N.W. Colorado and S.W. Wyoming.
