12 years for Quillin

Posted By on Fri, Sep 28, 2007 at 11:46 AM

Former Pulaski County comptroller Ron Quillin was sentenced to 20 years in prison with eight suspended this morning after he pleaded guilty to one count of felony theft in Circuit Judge John Langston's court.
Quillin is to make restitution immediately of $42,000 he stole from the county during his time as comptroller and director of administrative services. He is to begin making payments on $14,067 within 90 days of his release from prison; the sum is to cover travel expenses collected improperly and the cost of an audit.
Three other counts of theft, fraud and abuse of office were dropped.


UPDATE: Prosecutor Larry Jegley said the sentence, which in other circumstances could have been probation or assignment to a "regional punishment facility," reflected the fact that Quillin used his public office to steal public funds. He expects Quillin will do two years of the sentence, which, he added, "is a lot."
