Still have a hard time feeling negative about Don. What happened?

He's an admitted thief and pathological liar. Qualities most of us don't find to be a positive in a person.

From the links above, (which you should read):

"At the 2017 Ice Festival, though, Novak said he went out of his way to bring Foote back into the fold.

The event featured speeches honoring Foote’s contribution to the festival over the years, and Foote was presented with free gear on behalf of Novak and other organizers.

“It was astounding,” Novak said of what happened next.

While festival attendees were out making ascents, Novak said someone broke into the Cody Auditorium where the festival’s night time activities took place.

Almost $900 in gear was stolen, leaving Novak and others mystified – until Foote posted pictures of himself wearing some of the missing items. Novak said some of the gear was made specifically for organizers, so it was easy to recognize and identify."

Yeah, I read it. Not trying to excuse anything. I don't know Don too well, but the interactions I had with him over the years were good and that's saying a lot given the circumstances of some of them. He put a lot into the festival, as well. What ever has happened with him, I hope it goes better in the future, and I don't mean that as condescending sympathy. Maybe he just needs to get the hell out of small town Wyoming for a while.

The Wyoming Way has its charms, but you can stew in it too.

Don Foote Jr.: I've only encountered you that one night in GTNP in late September as a law enforcement officer,  I can not wait to meet you on equal terms.

So was the theft of goods before or after the plea deal and sentencing? If after, would that not break the conditions of the probation / suspended sentence and land the dude in jail?

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
