Former Parkway school board member sent to jail
  Rockford resident Terry M. Shaffer, 48, a former Parkway school board member, was sentenced to 60 days in jail on two counts of persistent disorderly conduct. He pleaded no contest and was sentenced Thursday in Celina Municipal Court.
At the request of the city law director, six counts of public indecency were dismissed. Fifty-eight days of his sentence will be suspended if Shaffer successfully completes a counseling program and no new like or similar charges are incurred.
In March, Shaffer was charged with eight counts of public indecency, according to Rockford Police Chief Paul May.
May had set up surveillance of Shaffer's home after a complaint was lodged by the father of a teenage girl who claimed Shaffer was exposing himself to passers-by. At the time of the arrest, May commented that he was hoping to dispel the whole thing, but that was not to be. "What we saw was definitely no accident," May had said.
