Officer resigns, sentenced for violating restraining order

July 8, 2018

BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) — A Bozeman police officer resigned from the department before he was sentenced for violating a restraining order involving his ex-wife.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports 35-year-old Nathanael Gaukler was given a one-year deferred sentence Friday for violating the order. A deferred sentence means that if he abides by the conditions of his sentence, he can later request to have the charge dismissed.

Gaukler had been on administrative leave since he was arrested Aug. 19 for allegedly threatening his ex-wife during an argument. The charge was later dismissed.

Gaukler was then cited in December for violating the protection order after his ex-wife reported to the Belgrade Police Department that he drove by her while she was in the parking lot of her work.
