SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Well-known musician Robert Ricklen Nobis has been sentenced to three years probation for lewdness.

Nobis exposed himself to a neighboring family in Emigration Canyon with home he was feuding, the judge said.

Nobis, 54, had pleaded guilty in to class A misdemeanor lewdness involving a child and class B misdemeanor lewdness.

Third District Judge William Barrett on Monday ordered Nobis to undergo sex offender treatment, complete 50 hours of community service and pay an undetermined amount of restitution to his neighbors. Barrett also placed Nobis on alcohol and drug probation as recommended by the state.

Nobis, a pianist and longtime member of the Utah Symphony and a former KUER-FM classical music host, serves on the Emigration Canyon Community Council.

In court Monday, Nobis said, "I am sorry for my behavior and I promise it will never, ever happen again." He said he will build a fence around his yard.
