Former Tribal Firefighter Sentenced for Arson


POLSON — A former firefighter with the Confederated Salish and Kootenai tribes has been given a 20-year suspended sentence with the Department of Corrections after pleading guilty to setting several fires on the Flathead Indian Reservation in 2013 and 2014.

Lake County Attorney Steve Eschenbacher tells KERR-AM that Phillip Cody Haynes’s sentencing Thursday included a requirement that he pay about $100,000 in restitution.

Haynes pleaded guilty to felony arson in July.
