Jail date set for former Okaloosa sheriff's office employees

Florida’s First District Court of Appeals upheld the convictions and four-year sentences on March 5, nearly two years after the sentences were handed down.

Each defendant was given the opportunity to request a rehearing from the Court of Appeals. Yacks was the only one to do so.

He also requested that the three-judge panel that denied the appeal provide a written opinion stating its reasons for the denial.

The court had withheld comment when it issued its order upholding the Yacks, Coup and Norris convictions.
