No prison time for worker in Utah pesticide deaths
No prison for exterminator who pleaded guilty to use of pesticide linked to girls' deaths
By The Associated Press

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) ' A federal judge has ordered no prison time for a former exterminator who pleaded guilty to the use of a pesticide that was linked to the 2010 deaths of two girls in Utah.

U.S. District Judge Dee Benson said Friday that Coleman Nocks had shown true remorse and sentenced him to three years on probation. Nocks had expected to serve six months in prison and six months of home confinement as part of a plea agreement.

Benson also sentenced Nocks' former employer, Bugman Pest and Lawn Inc., to a $3,000 fine and probation.

Bugman President Raymond Wilson and Nocks each pleaded guilty in October to one misdemeanor count of unlawful use of a registered pesticide.

The Toone family of Layton was sickened by pesticide fumes, and two children died.
