BOULDER — After more than three years of mystery and uncertainty, former Marine Lance Hering will have the chance to write a new future without a felony conviction hanging over his head.

Hering, 24, will spend the next 18 months on probation for concocting a story to cover his Aug. 29, 2006, disappearance. If he stays out of trouble, he will see his criminal record wiped clean.
