Lake County District Court News for July 5, 2017

Judge James A. Manley sentenced the following people on June 28:

Nathan Taylor Wise, 29, of Arlee, was given a deferred four-year sentence for arson. A charge of criminal endangerment was dismissed as part of a plea agreement. He was ordered to complete 40 hours of counseling. Wise was charged after a travel trailer that contained ammunition was set fire on Nov. 2, 2016 in Arlee. Wise set the fire after a fight with his girlfriend at a home next door to the travel trailer, according to a court document. Once the fire was set the ammunition started going off but no one was injured.

Vincent Louis Burrafato, 42, of Pablo, had a three-year suspended sentence to the Department of Corrections revoked for probation violation for his fourth DUI. He got three years with none suspended for that offense, and five years in DOC with all but 13 months suspended for his fifth DUI. The sentences will run consecutively. He was ordered to complete a 13-month treatment program and pay fines and fees of $5,650. On Jan. 12, Burrafato blew a .118 on a blood alcohol content test following a traffic stop, a court document states.

David Aaron Kallowat, 33, of Ronan, was sentenced to three years in DOC with all suspended for criminal possession of dangerous drugs. He was given credit for 51 days in jail and released on his own recognizance pending an extradition to Idaho. He was ordered to pay $710 in fines and fees.

Rocky Lane Olson, 34, of Polson, was given a deferred three-year sentence with credit for 31 days in jail for an amended charge of criminal endangerment. A drug possession charge was dismissed as part of a plea agreement. He was cited following a Dec. 30, 2016 traffic incident on Mollman Pass Road that involved passengers and at least one minor. He was originally charged with criminal child endangerment, intimidation, driving on a suspended license, his third DUI, no insurance and failure to give timely notice.
