A man highlighted as one of Utah's worst "deadbeat employers" in a Salt Lake Tribune story last year has been ordered to pay $400,000 in unpaid wages and taxes.
Charles Snively, 38, former owner of Salt Lake Valley Protective Services, a security guard company, pleaded guilty to two third-degree felony counts involving taxes.
Third District Judge Katie Bernards-Goodman ordered Snively to pay his former employees $98,226 in unpaid wages first and then pay more than $287,000 to the Utah Tax Commission. He was also placed on probation for six years or longer until restitution is paid. He was also ordered to pay some additional fines, including $467 for extradition costs from his residence in Aurora, Colo.
