Garon Miskin

Garon Miskin

Judge Dane Watkins Jr. sentenced Garon Miskin to a rider program Thursday, meaning he will serve at least six months in prison while receiving treatment, despite recommendations from both the prosecution and defense that he be sentenced to probation.

Miskin, of Rexburg, will have an underlying fixed sentence of 3 1/2 years in prison, combined with an indeterminate sentence of 6 1/2 years.

Miskin was originally charged with sexual abuse of a child, but under a plea bargain those charges were reduced to injury to a child.

This story will be updated later.
