Supreme Court Rules On Sidney Case


The Montana Supreme Court has ruled that a former Sidney High School custodian must have a new trial.

Jeffrey Thomas Weber was found guilty of stealing a plasma cutter from the Sidney High School industrial arts area in 2014. The felony theft conviction, however, was overturned by the Montana Supreme Court citing that Weber’s attorney failed to prove that the plasma cutter was worth less than its original value of $1,500. Because of the reduced worth of the plasma cutter, the charges should have been a misdemeanor.

Weber, 36 at the time of his sentence, received a four-year deferred sentence for the felony charge of theft.
