BROKEN BOW, Neb. (AP) — A South Dakota man was sentenced to probation after pleading no contest to sale by deception in a cattle fraud case.

Trent Loos of Norris, S.D., pleaded to the misdemeanor charge Friday as part of a deal with special prosecutor Jason White.

Prosecutors dropped a felony charge and another misdemeanor charge in the case against Loos and his wife, Kelly, in exchange for the plea.

Loos had faced up to 20 years in prison for a charge of selling cattle without a bill of sale or power of attorney.

A Custer County District judge sentenced Trent Loos to two years probation, $5,000 in restitution and court costs.
