MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

A former Marshall County Commissioner is sentenced to four years probation on charges he converted campaign contributions for personal use.

Tim Bollinger was facing nine counts, but all but one were dropped against him.

Bollinger, who once served the public, was ordered to 100 hours of community service.

In a deal with state prosecutors, Bollinger pleaded guilty to campaign contribution conversion.

He was charged with nine counts, including theft, receiving gifts, and using his position for personal gain.

Bollinger was indicted and arrested in April 2011 with the theft of musical instruments, and a gas turbine, as well as converting campaign contributions while he was running for the House of Representatives in 2010.

His five year jail sentence was suspended in lieu of four years supervised probation.

He was also ordered to pay more than $5500 in court costs and restitution.

All of that money was paid in full on Wednesday.
