Marysville A former northeast Kansas county attorney will spend a month in jail for stealing more than $70,000 from a church he served as treasurer.
KNZA-FM reports that former Marshall County Attorney Brian Carroll will also spend two years on probation under the sentence he received Tuesday in district court.
Retired District Judge Jack Murphy ordered Carroll to begin the 30-day jail term Dec. 27.
Carroll pleaded guilty in October to felony theft. He admitted misappropriating money from the Marysville Berean Church between August 2006 and November 2010 while serving as the church treasurer.
He resigned from his position as Marshall County attorney in August 2010 to accept a job as a trust officer at a bank in Pratt.
The theft case was prosecuted by the Kansas Attorney General’s office.
