Montana Man Admits to Waterboarding Children

Posted By on Tue, Mar 12, 2013 at 9:06 AM

A Montana man has admitted to "waterboarding" children and has been sentenced to two years of probation.

This morning's Helena Independent Record reports that 42-year-old William Province faced felony charges when prosecutors said he simulated drowning four boys and made threats to a local school and others. But in a plea agrement, Province admitted to four misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

On March 8, Montana District Judge James Wheelis sentenced Province to 180 days in jail, all suspended, for each of the four misdemeanors. He was also sentenced to two year on probation, minus the 80 days that he spent behind bars.

The Independent Record reports that at the time of Province's arrest, prosecutors said a witness reported that the suspect possessed body armor, mulitiple assault rifles and armor-piercing ammunition.
