Rapid City security company owner escapes prison time

RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) - It's not as harsh a sentence as the first time around.

Kenneth Orrock, the former Bennett County State's Attorney and current owner of Black Hills Patrol, has been re-sentenced with no jail time for failing to collect and pay taxes from his security company.

Orrock was originally sentenced to 12 months in jail, to be served over two and half years on weekends at the Pennington County Jail.

However the Federal Bureau of Prisons said they could not legally fulfill the sentence under those terms.

So Wednesday, Judge Viken re-sentenced Orrock with no jail time.

He gets five years of probation with five special conditions including 500 hours of community service.

In addition, he must pay $1,000 of restitution within five days and $1,000 a month until he pays the government $280,000.

If Orrockā€™s probation officer sees that he is able to pay more restitution a month, they will increase the amount.
