SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A former Utah Highway Patrol trooper charged with embezzling money from a nonprofit police organization has been sentenced.
Yesterday, a judge ordered 43-year-old Donald F. Sagendorf to serve two-hundred hours of community service and pay a five-hundred dollar fine. The sentence was handed down after Sagendorf entered a guilty plea in abeyance to a second-degree felony.
Prosecutors say Sagendorf stole nearly 34-thousand dollars from the U-H-P Association, which uses the money to help troopers and contribute to charities. He stole the money between 2002 and 2004, while he was the association's treasurer.
Prosecutors say Sagendorf has paid back the money in full.
