Former Selah Supervisor Sentenced
Frank Sweet, former Selah City Supervisor was sentenced today after pleading guilty in Yakima County Superior Court. He pleaded guilty to damaging public records, was sentenced to one day in jail, and he’s required to pay restitution. Sweet entered an Alford Plea, which means he acknowledged that prosecutors had a strong enough case to convict him. Sweet still refused to admit any guilt. He was accused of stealing a laptop computer and hard drive owned by the city and of deleting public documents after he was fired when current Selah Mayor John Gawlyk took office.
