MALONE — Former Titus Mountain manager Zachary White likely will not face prison time for stealing electricity from National Grid and committing a series of environmental violations at the ski resort.
Mr. White, 45, appeared Thursday in Franklin County Court before acting Judge Penelope Clute. Judge Clute agreed she will not sentence him to a state prison term. Mr. White pleaded guilty to all of the charges against him, though he maintained his innocence on four charges to which he entered an Alford plea in July.
Judge Clute may sentence Mr. White on Dec. 3 to time in county jail, probation or both, Clinton County Assistant District Attorney Timothy Blatchley said.
Mr. White agreed to restitution of $25,000 to National Grid and $15,000 in fines and surcharges to the state for the environmental violations. Mr. Blatchley said the combined amount will be paid on the day of sentencing in December.
