Idaho farmer gets probation in Snyder County for stealing cattle

MIDDLEBURG — An Idaho cattle broker convicted by a Snyder County jury of stealing cattle from a Middleburg farmer was sentenced today to 36 months of probation and to pay $15,000 in restitution.
At the request of Tony E. Martins attorneys, Senior Judge Louise O. Knight deferred sentencing until he files a post-sentence motion or appeal.
Martins, 38, of Filer, Idaho, went to trial in June on three counts of felony theft by unlawful taking and two counts of failure to make required disposition of funds for allegedly stealing $207,000 worth of cattle from Michael Snook, owner of Creek Bottom Farms.
The jury returned a split verdict, convicting Martins of one count of felony theft, acquitting him of another theft charge and failing to agree on three other felony charges.
