WRE Defendants Plead Guilty as part of a plea deal

July 19, 2019

WRE defendants have plead guilty to a subset of the original charges brought against them as part of a plea deal to limit their maximum sentence.

DCCS Press Response:

The Davis County Cooperative Society (DCCS) would like to re-affirm that it condemns in the strongest terms fraudulent business practices and stresses that this behavior goes completely against our beliefs and principles.  We cannot and will not condone or support anyone found to be engaged in the behavior alleged in the pending case.                

"DCCS condemns in the strongest terms, fraudulent business practices and stresses that this behavior goes completely against our beliefs and principles."

Business owners who are members of the Davis County Cooperative have the autonomy to make their own business decisions. Members are encouraged to conduct business in a fair and lawful manner through every facet of their activity.

Additionally, we urge both member and non-member business owners to fulfill their civic and ethical obligations to the communities they serve and to abide by the law.

The DCCS supports the judicial system and encourages compliance among its members with lawful orders of the court.

While we are just becoming aware of the details of the plea deals for the individuals involved, we understand that it is a very difficult time for them and their families.  It is our hope and prayer that the family will receive the support, sensitivity and privacy to move forward at this time and that the best possible outcome can be reached for all parties.
