CALDWELL -- A Canyon County man has been sentenced to house arrest after pleading guilty to aiding a man suspected of shooting two sheriff's deputies.

The Idaho Press-Tribune reports that 33-year-old Clayton Dewey was sentenced by 3rd District Judge Juneal Kerrick on Thursday to 30 days of house arrest. Dewey has end-stage kidney disease and must undergo daily dialysis while he waits for a transplant. That complicated medical issue prompted Kerrick to keep Dewey out of jail and off probation, so he won't lose his place on the transplant list.

Prosecutors said Dewey allowed Kyle Batt to hide in his garage while police searched for him last October and that he treated Batt's bullet wound. Batt has been charged with shooting two deputies when they approached him in the garage.
