Probation ordered for Blanding teacher in artifacts case

Published: Friday, Nov. 18, 2011 7:31 p.m. MST

MOAB undefined A Blanding school teacher who pleaded guilty to selling Native American artifacts was sentenced to probation in U.S. District Court Friday.

David A. Lacy, 58, was issued a sentence similar to that handed down to 25 other individuals accused of stealing Native American artifacts from public lands and selling them as U.S. Magistrate Judge Samuel Alba ordered him to spend one year on probation.

As a condition of his probation, Lacy is not to enter government property for any reason other than travel.

Lacy was indicted in May 2009 on nine counts of selling, stealing or offering to sell a number of archeological artifacts, including a turkey feather blanket, a basket mat fragment, a female apron/loin cloth, one complete woven sandal and two partial woven sandals believed to have been taken in violation of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act.
