Former Mayor Faces Sentencing
A former public official was sentenced today for abuse of public trust.
Phil Trzop worked for the Boone County Water District and was also the mayor of Walton.
Investigators say Tzrop sold scrap metal belonging to the district, then used the money to pay bonuses and throw parties for workers.
The judge sentenced Trzop to five years, but that five years was probated, 60 days in jail with work release, 120 hours of community service, a $1,000 fine, and he must take an anti-theft class.
