A former Toledo Police sergeant who acknowledged double billing the department and Toledo Public Schools for work done during the same hours will spend 60 days on house arrest.
Ova E. Tate, Jr., 55, was sentenced in Lucas County Common Pleas Court on Wednesday to one year probation, including 60 days house arrest on electronic monitoring, and a $1,000 fine.
Judge James Jensen also suspended a six month sentence at the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio, which he said he will enforce if Mr. Tate does not follow the conditions of his probation.
Mr. Tate pleaded no contest and was found guilty Dec. 3 to a misdemeanor theft charge. As part of the plea, he agreed to reimburse the city of Toledo $3,788.93 and the school district $1,743.50.
