    Kimball Mason Sentenced

    (Boise) – Former Idaho Falls City Prosecutor Kimball W. Mason was sentenced today to three concurrent one to five-year prison terms. Mason previously pleaded guilty to three felony crimes. Senior District Judge William H. Woodland sentenced Mason in Seventh District Court in Idaho Falls and entered a judgment of conviction on all three crimes.

    Mason was remanded to the custody of the Department of Correction. The court retained jurisdiction for 180 days. Mason paid $8,400 in restitution to the City of Idaho Falls for the value of the firearms improperly taken by Mason from the Idaho Falls Police Department Evidence Custodian and $1,800 for costs of the investigation.

    On March 20, 2006, the Attorney General charged Mason with two counts of grand theft in violation of Idaho Code Sections 18-2403(1) and 18-2407(1)(b) and one count of falsifying a public record in violation of Idaho Code Section 18-3201.

    On April 19, 2006, Mason entered a plea of guilty to each of the three felony charges.

    By pleading guilty, Mason admitted to the allegations in the complaint. Those allegations are:

    Count 1 alleges that, on July 19, 2005, Mason wrongfully obtained and withheld a Ruger .357 revolver from its owner, the City of Idaho Falls, with the intent to appropriate the gun to himself or another person.

    Count 2 alleges that, on May 3, 2001, Mason wrongfully obtained and withheld a Lorcin 9 millimeter semiautomatic pistol from its owner, the City of Idaho Falls, with the intent to appropriate the gun to himself or another person.

    Count 3 alleges that, on February 2, 2004, Mason, while employed as the Idaho Falls City Prosecuting Attorney, willfully altered a court order for the release of evidence, which had been signed by Judge Keith M. Walker and which was an official government record.

    Pursuant to a plea agreement, Mason also admitted in open court on April 16 that he stole 16 other guns from the City of Idaho Falls. The weapons had been seized in criminal cases.

    Mason has surrendered his license to practice law. The Attorney General has provided the Idaho State Bar with a complete copy of the report of the investigation concerning Mason’s conduct.

    “The sentence in this case is, as it should be, harsher than that usually received by offenders with no prior criminal record,” Attorney General Lawrence Wasden said. “It is a just punishment that holds accountable, and imposes serious consequences on, a public official who abused the public trust. It is important that Idahoans have confidence in their government, and, as this case reflects, I am committed to insuring that the citizens of Idaho have government they can trust.”

    Wasden said his primary concerns in resolving the Mason case were to assure that Mason was convicted of multiple felonies, that Mason did not receive a withheld judgment, that Mason pay restitution to the City of Idaho Falls for the value of the public property taken and that Mason lose his license to practice law so he could not repeat this conduct.

    The Special Prosecutions Unit of the Attorney General’s Criminal Law Division prosecuted the case at the request of Bonneville County Prosecuting Attorney Dane Watkins, Jr.

    Following the sentencing hearing today, the Attorney General’s Office released the records of the investigation. To obtain a copy of the records on compact disc, interested citizens should submit a written request for the records of the Kimball Mason investigation addressed to: Public Records Request, Office of the Attorney General, 700 W. Jefferson St., P.O. Box 83720, Boise, ID 83720-0010.

    After he made a plea deal, they found more guns in his house and are charging him with more. I met this guy fighting traffic ticket, what a ! Couldn't have happend to a nicer guy.

    You're probably right, but he may become a "jail house lawyer", if he goes to a prison where they allow it. They don't have to be liscensed and are pretty well taken care of by those on the inside sometimes. They also file a lot of suits and cost taxpayers a bundle in doing so.
