Former Terre Haute Official Avoids Jail Time

Last updated on Thursday, September 27, 2007

(TERRE HAUTE) - A former county official has avoided jail time — despite being convicted of felony stalking.

Former Deputy Director of the Vigo County Emergency Management Agency Donald Vanhorn Wednesday was given a three-year suspended sentence and six months of home detention for the crime.

Court officials say the 61-year-old will be monitored using a global positioning system device while he is on home detention.

Vanhorn was accused of stalking a man who had done odd jobs for him in the past.
