VIROQUA, Wisconsin (WXOW) -- Former Village of Readstown Police Chief Shay Larson was fined $1,000 dollars but no prison time Monday for his convictions on three counts of felony misconduct in public office.
The charges stem from a 2009 incident in which prosecutors argued Larson turned a blind eye to three people who were drinking in a motor vehicle.
Larson was convicted by a jury in September.
District Attorney Timothy Gaskell had asked Larson be fined $3,000 for his crimes, as well as be sentenced to six months in jail.
But Vernon County Judge Michael Rosborough opted for the $1,000 fine and time served.
Larson's defense attorney declined to comment on the sentencing.
