ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) -- Fired Springdale Town Manager Glenn Hill has pleaded guilty to misusing public money.
Hill, 54, St. George, entered the plea Tuesday before 5th District Court Judge Eric Ludlow. Sentencing was set for April 12.
In exchange for the guilty plea, the misusing of public money charge was reduced from a second- to third-degree felony and a charge of embezzlement was dropped.
Hill also is to pay $40,000 restitution. He was accused of taking $153,847 over two years.
Prosecuting attorney Paul Christensen said there could be a civil lawsuit to recover more of the money.
