The average citizen who does what this man is said to have done would be spending years in prison.

NEZPERCE - A 31-year-old Kamiah man today was sentenced to 90 days in jail, given credit for 90 days served, placed on six years of supervised probation, and fined $530.50 for having a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old girl.
Daniel Funderburg, who is a former Idaho County Sheriff's Deputy, pled guilty under a Rule 11 Plea Agreement in Lewis County's Second District Court to one count of sexual battery - "committed by lewd or lascivious acts on a minor child 16 or 17 years of age." He was arrested on December 5th on a $250,000 warrant.
Court documents say that Funderburg and the girl began their relationship as early as July of last year with just talking, but it eventually led to more. The girl told investigators that they had sex five to ten times, and all - but a nature trail encounter - took place at Funderburg's Kamiah home.
He was fired by the Idaho County Sheriff's Office as of December 28th, according to officials.
