A King County Superior Court judge granted James Hager a first-time offender waiver, allowing him to participate in work release. He faced up to three months in jail. Hager will be under the supervision of the state Department of Corrections for six months.
A jury convicted Hager of second-degree burglary. He was accused of stealing a wood-burning stove, stove pipe and some cedar flooring from a vacation home in the Skykomish area. Hager was off-duty at the time.
When the allegations surfaced in November he was placed on administrative leave. Hager was fired in January. He had been a deputy for six years.
