SANDPOINT — The son of a federal prosecutor implicated in a rash of vehicle burglaries pleaded guilty Wednesday to a reduced charge of misdemeanor theft.

Judge Eugene Marano sentenced Christopher Alan Cook to 365 days in jail with 335 days suspended. Cook was given credit for 10 days he’s already served, according to court documents.

Marano also placed Cook on unsupervised probation for two years and ordered him to a submit to an alcohol evaluation. Cook was apparently intoxicated when he committed the misconduct.

Cook, 22, of Dalton Gardens, was charged with burglarizing six vehicles in Sandpoint last December. Cook is the son of Nancy Cook, an assistant U.S. prosecutor in the Panhandle.

    Sorry, Biker, its worse than you think. You have to be somebody to get a job with the government or have lots of money to get elected. The people on the inside don't let anyone in unless they are "agreeable" with the status quo--those who want true equality get weeded out before getting backing from a political party.

    You forgot one important point rollingthunder, you have to be part of the system to violate the system with no consequences... moral of the story.... if you're a criminal, just get elected or get a government job, then it's all sunshine and smiles.[innocent]

    Committed six felonies and get convicted of a misdemeanor, a state cop gets his hand slapped for poaching a moose. No wonder people commit crimes here. A state legislator steals logs and won't pay taxes. I guess who you are makes a difference.
