On Your Side newsroom
Kyle Alan Batt has been sentenced to 30 years in prison which will run concurrent with a 15 year federal sentence for his role in shooting two Canyon County Sheriff Deputies.
On October 23rd, 2012, Deputies Michael Roth and Brad Childers arrived at Batt’s home to investigate a gun crime that had occurred earlier in the day.
Batt fired eleven shots at police before Deputy Childers was able to return fire and injure Batt.
Deputy Childers has returned to work since the incident, but Deputy Roth is still continuing to recover from his injuries he sustained.
“These are the men that put on a badge and uniform every day to protect the public and uphold the laws of this country,” argued Deputy Prosecutor Erica Kallin at sentencing. “The message needs to be sent that if you harm law enforcement, you will be held accountable for your actions and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
