The Sheridan County Deputy who was arrested last summer for child abuse was sentenced today in Box Butte County District Court.
40-year-old Chris Henry was sentenced Friday afternoon to 36 months of probation on a Class 3A felony charge of Intentional Child Abuse resulting in no injury. He also received a two day jail sentence, with credit for two days already served.
In November Henry pleaded guilty to the child abuse charge, and in exchange for the guilty plea, a charge of Strangulation was dismissed.
Court documents say during the July 2018 incident, Henry “knowingly or intentionally caused or permitted a minor child to be cruelly punished.”
