The neighbors support Clare Niederhauser, but the prosecutor insists on persecuting him. Cannot he get the same special deal that David Gregory did? After all, no one was hurt, he prevented a crime, and helped capture criminals.
A northern Utah man who drew support from other residents after he was arrested for shooting at a suspected burglar who was fleeing his property is expected to take a plea deal Tuesday in Layton.
Attorneys for Clare Niederhauser, 64, and prosecutors from the Layton city attorney's office have hammered out the parameters for a deal, Assistant City Attorney Steve Garside said. Barring an unexpected turn of events, the details will be made official during a court hearing at 3:30 p.m., Garside said.
