Junior Steelheads Owner Sentenced to Prison

Posted By on Fri, Mar 28, 2014 at 10:39 AM

The man who owns the Idaho Junior Steelheads hockey franchise—which calls McCall its home—has been sentenced to three months behind bars for his conviction on fraud charges.

The McCall Star-News reports that 68-year-old Darrell Swiggert was convicted on two federal counts of obstruction of justice and one count of conspiracy to obstruct in connection with his financial connections to the Meridian-based MacCon construction firm.

In addition to his three months in prison, Swiggert was sentenced to two years of supervised probation, 100 hours of community service and a $5,000 fine.

In April 2013 , the Junior Steelheads won its third straight WSHL Thorne Cup championship in a title tournament held in McCall.

Meanwhile, former MarCon President Elaine Martin, who was convicted on 22 felony counts of fraud, has already been sentenced to seven years in prison.
